Jurassic Carp

There is something seriously fishy about this boat trip — as carp leap out of the water and in to the vessel.
More than 70 Asian carp can be seen flying through the air as a frightened family cower.
The fish are notorious for their jumping ability — caused by a fear of boats.
The footage was filmed on the flooded Spoon River in Illinois.
The user who posted the video on YouTube said the funniest part of the surprise carp-eting was that his youngest nephew was curled up in the foetal position in the front of the boat the entire time.
One YouTube user said: "Ecological disasters are hilarious."

Re: Jurassic Carp

Definitely not cool. These fish are wiping out native species to the brink of extinction. To see kids laughing at this kinda frightens me as I wonder where our species might soon end up if we don't control our own idiocy.

It's a natural reaction for people to laugh, especially kids, when first seeing fish act that way as it's not something usually seen by people.
