John Walsh doesn't fish. In this case, he didn't have to. A 14-inch striped bass landed in his Milton, Massachusetts yard on Monday.
"I'd expect it at the beach, but we're a mile and a half, two miles from the ocean," said Walsh.
The Walsh family was outside when they heard two birds fighting over something on their roof.
Later, they found out what the seagulls were fighting over when they discovered the fresh sea bass that was dropped in their garden.
"It was relatively fresh; it wasn't a stinky, old fish out of a dumpster," said Eileen Walsh.
The family thought about cooking the fish, but after looking at the seagulls, they decided to throw it in the garbage.
