(KSL News) A fishy mystery is finally solved.

Pictures of a strange looking fish surfaced right after April Fool's Day. However, it wasn't a joke, the fish was found in a Brigham City Pond.

Eyewitness News viewers e-mailed in their guesses, suggesting everything from a piranha to a Ssakehead fish. The Division of Wildlife Resources did genetic testing and revealed today that it actually is a lake trout. They believe an animal carried it onto the road where it was run over and left to decay, resulting in its unusual appearance.
