Video proves it: Fishermen found finger in a fish

SPOKANE, WA (KPTV) -

Several fishermen found a man's finger inside of a fish they caught in Idaho's Priest Lake.

The fishermen pulled in a 5-pound trout earlier this month and didn't think anything of it.

That is until they cut it open and found the finger.

They say it looks like the fish swallowed it whole, so the guys took it out, put it on ice and gave it to the county sheriff.

Using a fingerprint, deputies were able to track the finger back to Haans Galassi.

Galassi lost the finger along with three other fingers during a wake boarding accident back in June.

The accident was eight miles from where the fish was caught.

The sheriff still has the finger for now.

Galassi hoped a doctor might be able to reattach the finger because the frigid water temperatures kept it preserved but his doctor told him no.
