A colleague sent me this picture of her nephew and a carp in the middle of a field far from any body of water. She does not know how the carp got there. The picture was taken south of Rensselaer.
Would this photo make a good "caption-this" contest?

According to Mike Kingman, former Jasper Co. Surveyor, he has seen this many times - they swim through the tiles and come out through a breakdown in the tile.

This is a challenge for Dessert Survivor to try to get one on video for the blog!

This carp was pulled out of Vince Urbano's pond due to winter kill. He pulled him into the field to fertilize the soil along with over a hundred other fish, mostly bass and bluegill. That was the only carp in the pond.
