What do you have to do, put GPS implants in your fish?

Sorry about this. But someone sold them to sell them. So if you buy them, you're just as guilty unless you turn them in.

And why throw the big one under a bush? Couldn't it just be put back in the pond.

Heartless! If they couldn't take the bigger one, why did they have to leave him out to die. Why didn't they just put him back in the pond? I hope they catch these people, but people have no morals anymore. They will buy from people they know stole stuff and will say this is great, I got something cheap rather than questioning why someone is selling something out of the trunk of a car.

Koi can be quite pricey. Especially larger ones...
I feel for the owners. Koi are more like pets - many enjoy being fed by hand. I'd love to have a Koi pond, but my husband (rightly so) feels that I've got enough pets to keep me busy.

How can they be sure they were stolen?

My father is always having to replace his koi - hawks and racoons are frequent visitors. True they do have some deterents - like a wire mesh on the water - I am sure that a smart racoon could get around it.

Take the bridge to nowhere and turn left when you see a sign called Fiddle Creek.

I don't usualy comment but...This same thing happened to a guy I know in Palmer Township. He loaded up his pond with $700 worth of Koi. Within two days they were gone. He was rather puzzled until he saw the hawk sitting at the pond. So, I am not sure they were stolen. More like captured and eaten. Bear maybe? I doubt someone would steal fish. Something wandered along and snared them.

Expensive as heII fish. That's what hurts. And the crappy feeling you get when someone steals from you, that feeling of being violated. It's not a good feeling.

Ok this happened to a friend of mine. Her pond was stocked by a fish place. Over a few weeks she had no fish left. Guess what took them....it was a animal that lived in the water/land..I want to say a beaver but I could be wrong(?). So my question is...how do they know it was a person and not an animal?

My first thought was a bear or hawk too. What makes them think a person took them?
