man saves fish

Leo loved his fish. And I quote, “He figured the koi had had a heart attack and took it out of the water to try to resuscitate it, giving it heart massages before joining lips with the fish.”

The fish recovered.

  1. Yuck, yuck, and YUCK.

    Then again, some people get disgusted by others who kiss their dogs and cats and I have no problem with that.

    But a fish? Ew.

  2. Ew.

    Those koi are expensive. If someone’s so stupid as to plop down $3000 for a 24″ koi, then the said stupid person would be stupid enough to give it CPR when it started floating. Gross.

  3. I took a picture of a pond of smilar fish over in Japan. I should have snagged a few. However, I would not attempt to give a fish mouth-to-mouth. Some things are wrong in this world, and that’s one of them.

  4. I’m pretty ignorant about fish anatomy (I’m not even sure I can spell anatomy), but… Doesn’t a fish breathe through its gills anyway? If so, giving it mouth-to-mouth might not have been productive. Mouth-to-gill? :P

  5. That’s a good point, but I believe it only breathes through its gills when it’s underwater. It’s suffocating in air. Maybe the heart massages were what really saved it.
