Fish finger belonged to wakeboarder
A human finger found inside a fish in the US has been traced - to a man who lost four fingers wakeboarding three months ago.
Shocked fisherman Nolan Calvin found the finger while cleaning a trout he caught on a lake in Bonner County, Idaho.
He put the severed digit on ice and called the sheriff's office where detectives were able to get a fingerprint, according to the Spokesman-Review newspaper.
They matched it to a fingerprint card for Hans Galassi, 31, who lost four fingers from his left hand in an accident on the same lake in June.
"The sheriff called me and told me he had a strange story to tell me," said Mr Galassi.
"He said that a fisherman was out on Priest Lake, and I pretty much knew exactly what he was going to say at that point. I was like: 'Let me guess, they found my fingers in a fish'."
Mr Galassi went wakeboarding on the lake during a camping trip. His hand got caught in a loop in the line and he was unable pull it out before the line tightened.
"I pulled my hand out of the water and it had pretty much lopped off all four fingers," he said.
The sheriff;s office offered to return the finger, but Mr Galassi declined. Police say they will keep it for a few weeks in case he changes his mind.
