Flying Carp in the Illinois River

CNN reporter David Mattingly is doing a story on Asian carp invasion of the Illinois River and the rest of the Mississippi river system. The carp are unusual that they actually leap out of the water into the boat!

See what happen to poor David - they should give him hazard pay for this story. Link (embedded YouTube)

Note: And yes, there was tragic story last week about a ray that leaped out of the water and killed a woman ... fortunately, there's no fatality in this story.

Oh dear lord; I've got a massive fish phobia and lived in Illinois until just a few years ago - had I ever encountered one of these things that would have been the end of me, I'd have disintegrated right then and there as my every molecule fled in a different direction ... the horror, the -horror-!
