Mouring for BENSON
« on: August 04, 2009, 09:53:42 PM »
Anglers are mourning the death of Britain's biggest common carp after the famous fish was found poisoned in a lake.
The 25-year-old, dubbed Benson, weighed a staggering 64lb (29kg) - more than a large dog - and was worth £20,000.
But the carp was found floating on the surface of Kingfisher Lake in the Bluebell Lakes complex near Tansor in Peterborough last Wednesday.
 'Irreplaceable': Angler Matt Ridley holds 'Benson' the UK's biggest carp. The notorious fish has been found dead, leaving the angling community 'devastated'
A quantity of uncooked nuts, which are toxic to fish who swell up because they cannot process them, were found nearby on the bank.

Tony Bridgefoot, 53, the owner of Bluebell Lakes, said that the angling community was stunned by Benson's death.
He said: "This looks like the work of some very irresponsible anglers. We are all rocked by Benson's death. He was an iconic carp.

that's a shame:  needlessly killing anything, even fish.
