SINGAPORE: Investigations are being carried out after several fish died at a local koi competiton. One fish owner, Jemmy Tan, is suspecting foul play.
He said all the fish in the Young Koi Show were placed in the same type of water but only his batch of 10 were affected.
A koi can command a market value of up to S$20,000 and Mr Tan is estimating his losses run into tens of thousands of dollars.
But this isn't the first time mischief has plagued the show. Mr Tan said one of his championship fish had its tail cut after winning the title a few years.
Mr Tan has filed a police report and has sent his fish for further analysis. - CNA/vm
Can't believe such a thing actually happened in Singapore.
I wonder if the people were so jealous that they had to resort to doing this.
