The troublemaker of Chinatown checks in and chows down again.
The otter who took the lives of 11 koi fish last year has come back with a vengeance, already devouring 6 this year.
Vancouver Parks Director Howard Normann talks about how the garden prepared to defend the prized fish from the otter:
“Well, after the otter departed the last time, we did put some steel plates on our gates at a four foot height and had some automatic closer units put on those gates”.
He adds that additional gates will be added around the garden to fend off our furry friend.
“Those gates will address the issue of the otter being able to get through those gates”.
Let’s hope this is enough for the safety of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden’s koi and the otter.
