No more pregnant goldfish :-(

I just went down to the pond to turn the hose on to start filling it up again, and found a scene of carnage. Something has killed the fish: they were strewn, headless, across the deck and left floating in the small pond's water. I have been looking out for big birds--egrets and herons, who live close by--but there has been no sign of them.

I think it must have been in the night. Something strong that caught the fish and was able to lift them out of the small pond and then jump about three feet up onto the deck. All it ate was the heads.

Maybe raccoons... I don't know but I am very sad right now.
