Rowing Team Attacked By Flying Asian Carp Fish
Let’s be clear, no one wants unwanted guests, and these Asian carps are here to prove that theory right. It makes sense really, because we too hate to be bothered when we are in our happy place. It’s the place where we can isolate ourselves from the outside world and just do whatever we want without the interference of other people. Now just imagine how these fish were feeling when those boys decided to row their boat inside of their comfort zone. Of course they would be angry.
Watch as a team of college rowers from Washington University encounter hundreds of flying Asian carp fish during a training session on Creve Coeur Lake outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Of course, the boys didn’t mean any harm, but these little guys were angry and out for blood, or a seat as it would later turn out. The footage shows as the guys are trying to row to the dock, but are midway interrupted by a group of hundreds of fish. They literally fly out of the water and above the row boats, hitting the team in the process. One of the angry fish actually took the seat of one of the rowers and brought it with them inside the water.
The footage ends with the boys getting to the dock, soaked to their skin and sitting unbelieving on their seats while the coaches laugh it off. What do you think you would do in a situation like this one? Would you row faster or just drop everything you’re holding and cover your face to escape the attack. We must say, we don’t see these kinds of things happen every day!
