Loose translation of TakagiSota’s twitter:
During the recent draining and cleaning of Tokyo’s Inokashira Pond, a giant carp called ‘Moby Dick’ has been finally captured. Moby has been frightening visitors for years slurping at car tires and small Shiba dogs. Finally the pond will be at peace.

According to RocketNews24, the Parks Department began draining Inokashira Pond as part of an effort to remove harmful non-native fish, such as bluegill, that have been introduced to the body of water …[and]…in just a single day, more than 50 twisted, rusted, abandoned bicycles were pulled from the pond …[but]… the lake could still be concealing around 150 more bicycles.
