B&B owner appeals for missing goldfish

News

THE proprietor of a well known B&B in Westport town has described as ‘a mystery’ how eight of nine goldfish he owned have gone missing from the fountain outside his home.
The eight fish, of varying shapes and sizes, went missing in the early hours of last Tuesday morning and have since failed to turn up. The fish left behind has since died.
“It’s all very strange,” said the proprietor, who wished to remain anonymous. “All the fish were in the fountain when I went to bed and the next morning when I got up to make the breakfast, eight of the nine fish were gone.
“At first I thought someone was playing a prank but the fish as of yet have not turned up so I am beginning to think that someone actually stole them. The fish are a unique part of the B&B and are very popular with customers and I am anxious to find them safe and sound.”
The B&B proprietor has asked that if anyone has any information on the whereabouts of the goldfish, could they please contact The Mayo News office, so their safe return can be negotiated.
“If the fish don’t show up in the next few days, I will have no other choice but to report the matter to the Gardaí,” concluded the B&B proprietor.
