Anglers in Argentina recently caught a three-eyed fish, reports Argentine news service Cadena 3.
The fishing hole where the mutant fish was caught may be more of a fission hole. The reservoir, named “Chorro de Agua Caliente,” receives water from a nuclear plant in the province of Córdoba.
The Simpsons fans will remember the same thing happened in “Springfield” when Bart caught Blinky, a three-eyed fish, in the pond fed by Monty Burn’s nuclear power plant in the episode, “Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish.”
“Because it was night, we didn’t realize it in the moment,” Julián Zmutt told Cadena 3.
After checking the fish out by lantern light, one of the fishermen noted the bizarre mutation.
“We’ve fished here for many years, and this is the first time this has happened,” Zmutt said.
Through no official examinations have been completed, the fishermen think the mutant’s proximity to the nuclear plant is a little fishy.
