    THE MYSTERY FISH

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     goodnewsfm1 said fishermen in the area had never seen a fish like this, so they didn't know if it was okay to eat it. Some even wondered if it was some sort of sea god. He said some fishermen tried to drag it back out to sea, but it washed back on shore. They ended up just leaving it to decay on the beach.
