    A guy who lives at
    RoundLake (50 miles South of Yorkton) saw a ball bouncing Around kind of strangely in the lake and went to Investigate.
    It turned out to be a flathead catfish who had Obviously tried to swallow a b
    asketball 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 guy 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...

    Yeah, I had a feeling it may have been on this site before. Still thought it was worthwhile, just in case. Someone sent it to my daughter, Seacatwomangirl.:roll_eyes:
