BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A fisherman caught more than he expected when he reeled in a catfish with three eyes.
"It was a crazy scene," said Greg Hunter, a witness who shot video of the fish as a crowd gathered around. "Some lady was flipping out cause (the fisherman) whacked it dead,” he told WABC.
The fish was captured in the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York.
Hunter said a female bystander was upset, citing efforts to preserve wildlife.
The man who caught the oddity said he was going to eat it.
Social media users have compared the fish's likeness to Blinky, the three-eyed fish character in "The Simpsons."
