"Zhang, the clinic’s owner, said he was preparing the fish for use as a traditional medicine to treat nail ringworm.

“The fish can only be used for medical purposes, and anyone who eats it will surely die,” Zhang told the paper.

Zhang said he bought the 3-kilogram carp two weeks ago. After soaking it in the arsenic solution, he hung the fish in the doorway of his clinic, allowing it to dry during the day and bringing it in at night.

Zhang called the police immediately after discovering that the poisonous fish had been stolen at 9 PM last Tuesday.“The preserved fish was headless and the guts removed,” he said."

"...traditional medicine"?

Nail ringworm can be treated with over-the-counter medicines for gawdssake!!!
