A fisherman found more than fish while trout fishing in an Idaho lake. The fish had a human finger in its stomach. Investigators managed to track down the owner of the finger. Haans Galassi lost four of his fingers during a boating accident in July, reportsCNN.
Galassi has managed to get by without his fingers. He has said he does not wish to be reunited with his lost finger. He says that the lost finger brings back painful memories, and that he is trying to move past the accident.
The fisherman says that the finger is in good condition. Upon finding the finger, he placed it in a freezer and called the authorities to locate the owner of the finger.
The sheriff’s department managed to track down the owner of the finger. Galassi is rethinking his decision about the finger and contacting doctors about getting his finger sewn back on.
“The sheriff called me and told me he had a strange story to tell me,” Mr Galassi said Tuesday.
“He said that a fisherman was out on Priest Lake, and I pretty much knew exactly what he was going to say at that point.”
“I was like: Let me guess, they found my fingers in a fish.”
