A southeast Minnesota farmer says he was astonished by what he saw during a field check Wednesday.
Ryan Buck tells Brownfield he was in northern Goodhue County near the Mississippi and Vermilion Rivers, where several inches of rain has fallen in recent days.
“I was driving along checking (fields) yesterday and had gone past the field and turned around so I could see it on my driver’s side. I pulled in the field driveway and thought ‘what is flopping around down there?’ I pulled down further and it looked like they were carp.”
Buck estimates at least 20 fish were stuck in the field as waters receded.
