15,000 Trout Lost in NH

We should bring back the public stocks for the miscreants that did the deed!

Thousands Murdered in Milford, New Hampshire

Milford Police and the New Hampshire Fish and Game are asking for help from anyone with information regarding an act of vandalism that resulted in the loss of thousands of lives. At approximately 2:30 PM on Saturday, December 18, 2010, the water pumping station off North River Road in Milford was broken into.

Police say during the break-in a water pump was shut off, which subsequently killed 15,000 rainbow trout at the hatchery. These fish were to be stocked by Fish and Fame for anglers to enjoy across the Monadnock Region this spring.

One of the Dead

“The pump station is located in a popular recreational area, so we are hopeful that anyone who has any information regarding this incident will come forward,” said Conservation Officer Lt. Craig Morrocco.

The Fish and Game and Milford Police are working together to investigate the crime. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Fish and Game Department at 603-271-3361 or the Milford Police at 603-249-0630. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can call the Operation Game Thief 24-hour Hotline at 1-800-344-4262, or online.

  1. What would be nice is if they catch the culprates that they make them pay for the fish lost. At about $2 a fish that would be around $30,000. For the life of me I don’t understand why people have to be so malaises. Seems to me we are bringing up a society that has no regard for others, I really thing it goes back to the parents of the people who did this deed. If its teenagers who did it I hope the parents have to pay.

    Just my two cents.

  2. The British had a saying that I am fond of quoting from time to time and it covers a lot of ground. “Civility is the glue that holds society together”.
    It seems from the perspective of my years, that we have begun to run short. I wonder how that might turn around.
    I wonder.
