Surprise Catch

A fisherman and his assistant were out on the lakebed of Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland on Sept. 5 when they reeled in the farthest thing from their usual catch.

Raymond McElroy and his assistant, Charlie Coyle, were shocked when they hooked a massive pair of elk antlers with its skull almost fully intact. As it turns out, their catch was not only unexpected but historic, as the ancient skull dates back over 10,500 years, according to LiveScience.
