Pond fish theft dev­as­tates vil­lager

Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - News -

An Es­sex pen­sioner has been left dis­traught af­ter her pond was emp­tied overnight of al­most all its gold­fish. The ‘Brain­tree & Witham Times’ re­ported that the 80-year-old res­i­dent of Sil­ver End, who didn’t want to be named, first be­came sus­pi­cious when she no­ticed that the pond wa­ter level was un­usu­ally low.

When she went to check why, she found only a hand­ful of the 100-plus fish re­main­ing, and the fil­ter blocked with sed­i­ment that she thinks was stirred up by the thieves as they net­ted the fish. Po­lice have asked any­one who saw any­thing sus­pi­cious to con­tact them on 101.
