Speaking of Catfish

I got this email from my mom several days back. It's one of those email forwards that seems to go around the world and back several times. There were quite a few pictures included, but I chose just two to post here.

FISH STORY FROM WICHITA EAGLE NEWSPAPER This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday Wichita Eagle Newspaper a couple of weeks ago. Was in a housing development around 119thst. South and Maple. Anyhow a resident in the area saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange like in the developments pond and when he went to investigate, it was 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 the ball and release the catfish.
