    Indeed this does "appear" to be a squid, Echo. I like how they muse how odd it is to find this squid as they "are not usually found in the lakes of our part of the country". When someone finds a squid in a lake in ANY part of the country, I'll be impressed! "How did it get there?" ... Well, I would assume that someone went to the market... bought a squid... and threw it in the grass! They are probably getting a kick out of this article right now!

    Sometimes, I wonder about the media!

    Roger that, my first thought was to shake my head. It is not like there is no real news ... I suspect CG has the obvious answer.
