Huge fish grabs rodent in Minnesota lake


A pair of young visitors to a Minnesota lake captured video of a bizarre sight — a fish swimming off with a flailing rodent trapped in its mouth, believed to be a muskrat.

The video, filmed from a dock on White Bear Lake, was filmed by two young brothers, ages 13 and 10, when they spotted the muskrat being carried underwater by the “freaking huge” fish.

“So apparently this giant freakin — I don’t even know what this is — it’s eating a freaking muskrat, right now,” one of the boys says in the video.

The video ends with one of the brothers telling the other to “grab the net,” but it is unclear whether they were able to catch the large fish and free the muskrat.
