Spear fisherman has great white close encounter

Local spear fisherman Eugene van Wyngaardt details his close encounter with a Great White Shark at the Deep Pinnacles reef in Port Elizabeth. Van Wyngaardt says he had an explosion of adrenalin when he was forced to push the shark away with his spear as it swam towards him. Take a look. WATCH

Oslo - An unexpectedly sexy catch ended up in the net of a Norwegian fisherman, who said Friday he had landed a cod with a dildo in its stomach.

Bjoern Frilund, 64, this week found a 6kg cod in his net while fishing for herring on Norway's west coast and noticed the unusual shape of its stomach when he gutted it.

"First two herrings came out, and then I found this rubber thing," he told AFP.

Frilund said that, at a guess, the orange coloured sex toy was "15cm or 16cm".

"I knew cods swallow pretty much anything, but I couldn't expect this," he added.

"The odds of something like this happening are the same as being hit by a meteorite in the head."

The outlandish find was immortalised in a picture by his son Marius.

He does not think his dad was the victim of a prank, since the fish was caught alive and the dildo was deep in its stomach.

Frilund thought the cod had mistaken the dildo, which still had its motor but had no batteries, for a squid.

As for its origin, "maybe a frustrated lady threw it overboard from the Coastal Express", a tourist ship which cruises along the Norwegian coast, he guessed.
