I commonly see bass that have choked on other fish but a paddlefish... the catfish must have been swimming in the wrong place at the wrong time. These came out of a .5 acre pond.

Crazy pic! I cant believe something like that woild happen. The channel must have thought it was getting a big meal. What is a paddlefish doing in 0.5 acres? I dont know anything about them but would have guessed that they need significantly more room.

A .5 acre pond is very small for a paddlefish. The former owner of this pond was an Ohio river fisherman and transported various species.

Another theroy is that the paddlefish died and the cat tried to take a bite in the wrong spot; got stuck and struggled to death.

Sorry I've been MIA. The fish business has been busy this year. The recent water temperatures have about mandated a slow down though.
