These ten extra large Koi were stolen from the display pond, along with a sturgeon, at Squire’s Garden Centre in Badshot Lea, near Farnham on Friday, March 10.
Intruders broke in late on Friday evening, and took these very valuable fish, which are worth a total of £7,725. The Koi are all over half a metre in length and had been selected in Israel for their quality by Squire’s Pets and Aquatics Manager, before being imported from Israel to Squire’s in Badshot Lea.
Deputy Chairman Sarah Squire says: “We are all absolutely devastated that this theft has happened, and are very concerned about the welfare of the fish, as they require a large pond or facility with well-filtered oxygenated water. Pet welfare is at the top of our agenda at Squire’s. We urge people to come forward if they have any information.”
