A traditional Chinese garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, has been shut down due to a sneaky river otter who’s been terrorizing the resident koi population.
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden describes itself as the first Chinese garden built outside of China. One of its many beautiful features is its koi pond, home to 14 of the pricey and prized fish.
So far, the otter, which has been named the Chinatown Otter, has eaten 11 of those fish. It’s basically a crisis.
While it’s unknown exactly how the otter got in, otters are native to the area and definitely have a taste for fish.
The garden set up a trap to catch the little guy, but they haven’t had any luck so far.
In fact, according to CBC News, the otter managed to sneak into the trap overnight, take the bait, and get out scot-free.
