Ikan tercekik bola.. tak boleh tenggelam..

This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday Wichita Eagle newspaper. A resident in the area saw a ball bouncing around in the pond and when he went to investigate, it turned out to be a flathead catfish which had obviously tried to swallow a child's basketball which got 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 to cut the ball in order to deflate and remove it. The catfish was released.
