Catfish Bites Off More Than It Can Chew

Picture of a Catfish having a ball



WICHITA, KANSAS (JP) - A resident in a Wichita housing development saw a bouncing ball in the development’s pond. When he went to investigate, he was surprised to find a flathead catfish that had tried to swallow a child’s basketball - but the ball had become stuck in its mouth.
Catfish Caught More Than It Can Chew

The fish was totally exhausted from trying to dive, but was unable to dive because the ball would always bring it back up to the surface.


The resident tried numerous times to get the ball out of the catfish’s mouth, but was unsuccessful.


He finally cut the ball to deflate it and then the catfish swam away.


Sounds like a Catch-22  fishy story to us @ joe-ks.com...
