It's not unusual to hear about a driver who hit a dog or a cockerel while driving on the street. However, the story of a catfish shattering the windscreen of a woman is what we’ll all have to admit as being unusual.

Rhesa Walston, an office manager in North Carolina, Washington was driving home after visiting her mother on December 18 when a large bird (could be an eagle or a hawk) dropped a catfish on the passenger side of her SUV's windscreen, shattering it.
