had this emailed to me and thought everyone might want to see it A Fish Story This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday Asheville Citizen Times Newspaper a couple of weeks ago. Ron Mitchell 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. Ron tried numerous times to get the ball out, but was unsuccessful. He finally had Denise 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...
