Carp in Attleboro

Carp in the Boro

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00533

Allison and I were taking a walk this morning and when we got behind Cumberland Farms we heard some splashing in the water and branches crashing. I thought it may be someone’s dog or cat had fallen into the water but Allison spotted some rather large fish all splashing and pushing together. I snapped this photo of them and that was a bit too far out so I zoomed in more and saw them much closer but the photo is a bit grainy.

I posted the image to both Twitter and a page all about Attleboro. The overwhelming consensus was that these are some form of Carp. Whether or not they are the invasive Asian Carp remains to be seen. But it was pretty cool to see some fish in the river. I hardly ever see anything.
