Otter steals koi carp and goldfish from garden pond in Oakham, Rutland

A keen fish keeper says he is ‘devastated’ after an otter emptied his garden pond of koi and ghost carp and goldfish worth about £2,000.

The attack on Ken Smith’s property in Lonsdale Way, Oakham, happened after the otter dislodged large stones pinning down the edges of a wire mesh pond cover.

One of the fish - which weighed about 7kg - was found about 50 metres away, across the road. Others were left dead in the garden.
