This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday
Wichita Eagle Newspaper a couple of weeks ago. A resident in the
area saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange in a nearby pond and
went to investigate. It turned out to be a flathead catfish who had
obviously tried to swallow a child's basketball which became stuck
in its mouth!!
The fish was
totally exhausted from trying to dive, but unable to because the ball would always bring him back up to the
surface. The resident tried numerous times to get the ball out, but
was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut the ball in order to
deflate it and release the hungry catfish.
You probably wouldn't have believed this, if you
hadn't seen the following pictures
Be kind to
everyone as they too are trying to survive
