There is Something Fishy in Carroll County

Carroll County Deputies called it the Catch of the Day, but, any way you look at it, they had a fishy situation.

Monday night deputy’s responded to a call of debris in the roadway at IL Route 78 and Ideal Road.  When they arrived they discover about 200-300 pounds of what may have been Asian Carp across the roadway.

The Illinois Department of Transportation, along with Deputy Ponall used a plow truck to, as they put it, E-Fish-Ently clear the road of the fish.  Authorities believe a commercial truck hauling the fish may have turned too fast causing the spillage of fish.

If that was not bad enough, Deputies early Tuesday morning was chasing a goat through the alleys of Shannon that had gotten loose.
