We're not really sure what happened but we found two of our koi fish DOA at work. Right now, only one remains in our backyard patio at WISC.
PLAY: One is the Loneliest Number
It appears the two had been kidnapped from their little home, assaulted and eaten. Their lifeless carcasses were found somewhere on the back patio. We've narrowed the suspects down to either a raccoon or a weasel. I imagine the suspect looked something like this:
In reality, it's very sad. They were in their six or seventh season with us and supposedly they can live for decades! We are working on a solution to protect the fish -- we had talked about a net before but we didn't want it to be ugly. So, we are working towards another solution. We had named several of them throughout the years such as:
Andy Choi - Andy Koi
Jessica Arp - Jessica Carp
Susan Siman - Susan Salmon
Marc Lovicott - Marc Lovicoi
Mark Koehn - Mark Koin
RIP little friends. We don't know which one of you is left... so we'll just have to go with Jessica Carp or Susan Salmon.
