Sea Animals Killed, Stolen at Aquarium

July 29, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

An intruder, apparently armed with a spear, went fishing at the aquarium in Key West, Fla., killing several exotic specimens and making off with a load of lobsters, snappers and trout, officials said.

The break-in occurred one night last week, and employees found the bloody scene when they arrived for work.

In all, 20 animals were killed, wounded or taken, including lobsters, groupers and a speckled trout.
