So I guess it didn't occur to these people that some animal(s) could have been taking their fish?

It was probably a Heron or a cat-they cleaned out another pond I heard of!

We have tons of hawks and herons and critters. We've lost a couple of fish but we have a 4' deep spot in the middle where no predator can reach them and some shelter to hide.(I have not seen a diving pelican in the LV yet). You don't see ours in the shallows.

So with that kind of investment my guess would be their pond was similarly built. This kind of haul in that period of time? And $5000 worth of fish? Hmmm, sounds like a person with inside info could've pulled this one.

We're heading for all kinds of senseles theft as times get tougher.

You didn't do well in English class in school, did you? The correct word is "they're." They're means THEY ARE. They are fish. They're fish.

"Their" shows ownership, example: The fish belong to them. They are "their fish." Or, if you would like to get even more specific, "They're their fish."

"There" shows location. The fish are over THERE.

Now, I hope we have learned something. The use of poor grammar can inadvertantly make a person look unintelligent. First impressions are very important. I hope I have struck a chord with you!

Great post!! Fully agree....please see my post above. If you can't spell or use good grammer, you can't be understood or taken seriously.

Easier to steal them during cold weather. They are dormant and slow.

These fish are worth alot... that's why our pond is covered with CCTV cameras...

I have Koi also. They are very smart, and you can actually train them. I can't believe some idiotic moron actually just tossed the big one aside and left it die instead of putting him back into the pond. I don't know which ticks me off more, the thieves getting away with all those fish, or tossing Bubba aside to die. Freaking thieves really annoy me. Wish we could hang them all by their dingleberries.
