Catfish... Falls From Sky And Into Florida Pool?

Just about everyone in Florida has a big fish story to tell. This one, however, is a bit more unconventional than most. 

Leonard Vanderpool says it look a lot of work to convince Winter Haven police that a catfish had fallen out of the sky and into his swimming pool. 

When Vanderpool went to investigate a crashing noise come from his backyard, he found a large hole in his screened-in porch and a catfish swimming in the pool.

Police arrived and helped Vanderpool get the fish out.  Authorities eventually concluded a bird had the catfish and was likely going to have it for dinner when it let it go over Vanderpool's home.  

he bullhead catfish has horns and likely fought his attacker. The lucky fish was released alive and well into Lake Ruby.
