A 'devastated' couple were forced to remove a 6,000 gallon pond from their garden after 200 of their prized fish worth a total of £10,000 were eaten by an otter.

Linda and Alan Brown, both 60, said the huge pond in the garden of their home in Thetford, Norfolk, which contained about 150 goldfish and 50 other fish, was the talk of the local neighbourhood.

Another non-story from the DM; carnivore eats prey - big deal.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

I bet my black Labrador could have eaten more :/ They are known not to be the fussy breed, but a greedy breed certainly.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Goldfish are expensive in Euro. We get them free at the fairs here in America.

The otter doesn't give a flying cod about the value..it was simply hungry.

Well, why did they put them out in the garden pond?  They should have known better.

From today's Daily Express; the couple were quite happy to have Kingfishers and Heron at the pond - so what exactly were these feeding on then?
If they had any regard for wildlife they would have retained the pond with no (domesticated) contents.

Couple with more money than sense, stock their pond (luxury) with fish that an otter eats.
Well I a sorry, but booo  hooo.

Money can be spent any which way you want, if it is for pleasure and nature comes along and does what it does naturally,
get - a - life. :no:
