Three-eyed fish caught in Argentina
Life has imitated art in Argentina where fishermen have reportedly caught a three-eyed fish in an incident so almost identical to an episode of long-running cartoon show The Simpsons.
According to infobae.com, the fish was reeled in from a reservoir where water is pumped from a local nuclear plant in Córdoba, Argentina, last Thursday.
"We were fishing and we got the surprise of getting this rare specimen," fisherman Julian Zmutt said.
"As it was dark at that time we did not notice, but then you looked at him with a flashlight and saw that he had a third eye."
Mr Zmutt said this was the first time he had caught a three-eyed fish, and said local residents are now complaining that radiation has spread from the plant into the lake.
The scaly creature has been sent to a lab for testing to determine if the fish mutated as a result of being exposed to the water.
In an early episode of The Simpsons, a three-eyed fish named 'Blinky' was caught from waters near the Springfield nuclear power plant where Homer Simpson worked.
