I received this in an e-mail from a friend today. ~ Rose


A guy who lives at Lake Conroe (50 miles north of Houston) saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange in the lake and went to investigate.

It turned out to be a flathead catfish who had obviously tried to swallow a 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 guy tried numerous times to get the ball out, but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut tht ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry catfish.

You probably won't believe this "fish tale." BUT I have pictures!!.....

That is WIERD! Poor fish, that must have been awfully uncomfortable having a basketball stuck in his mouth...
