      Rosimeri had her koi stolen

      Please keep an eye out. stolen koi from Fresno, California, She is Showa3164 here

      Today is a sad, angry day for me and Seng. Someone came into our back yard and stole 7 of our precious koi fish. I can not believe this can happen to us, with all we give to this hobby and try to learn, some piece of **** thief would do this to us. Lesson learned, lock your gates, install cameras, get a freaking Rottweiler and let them loose on the thief. After all the fun we had in San Diego for this happen is devastating. All the koi taken were huge, close to 30" if not bigger, had to have been more than 1 person, so far neighbors saw nothing suspicious. What kind of society do we live in where this happens, so upset, hurt and angry.

      Those koi look large. They would have had to have coolers and more than just one person. Maybe a neighbor saw something? Very sad.

      I would like to find who did this and serve them right. Rosimeri was clearly targeted and probably followed home? Fresno is like 4 and a half hours or more from San Diego. This truly makes me sick and worried for others

      The problem is many have people come and go to look at there koi so the neighbors get used to it. My neighbors know when I'm home according to the vehicle in my driveway. If you are at my house without me there I will get a phone call. So sorry this happened and I will keep an eye out. So sorry this happened rosimeri. I kinda feel sick to my stomach now

      I don't know if this is a good idea or a bad one, but could Rosimeri run a full page ad saying Please bring back my pet koi, No questions asked.
      or $$$ Reward for information leading to return of pet koi.

      i hate to encourage you kevin, .. but i feel like you do. these are bad people. I wonder if a buyer was lined up. and might not even know these fish were stolen.
      bah.
      bad dreams tonight.

      Turning to dogs loose on them would be way too kind in my book. I would opt for a different approach.

      Sorry to hear this. I had my first pond poisoned and moved it to a more secure location.

      Some people post on FB that they are going to a show or vacation etc., and it is easier to know they are not home. I was always told not to post anything (vacation wise) until after the fact and you are home. I hope she wasn't targeted in this fashion, because the would mean it was someone with access to her info.

      She has dark curly hair.

      Neighbors saw nothing.

      I kind of agree with Koigrl. They were probably stolen to be sold. Notify any Koi dealers in the area and provide pictures. All friends and KP members in the area keep an eye on craig's list and e-bay.

      This is so upsetting and sad. I really hope they find who took them. I know how hard it is for me to catch and move my koi and they are much smaller.
      I really don’t understand how neighbors saw nothing. This would take time and a lot of commotion. Even if the backyard is fenced in they would have to walk big tubs or coolers to their vehicle(s) in the street. How doesn’t anyone see that?
      Ugh, this bothers me.
      My koi aren’t anything special, but I’d be devastated to find them missing.

      This also makes me more leary about having buyers come to my house this spring when I’ll be selling some fish off.

      Video servailence equipment can be fairly inexpensive these days. And even a game camera like what hunters use that are motion activated snap shots. Might have at least gotten a picture to give police. Some thing to think about for the future. I'm going to think about it for myself. But then again I have fourteen dogs that bark every time a squirrl farts.
