Photo credit: AP | Matt Willingham, owner of the shrimp boat Michele Dawn, looks for indentifying features on a prosthetic leg at his dock in Valapraiso, Fla. His boat captain pulled up the leg while shrimping in the Choctawhatchee Bay between Fort Walton Beach, Fla. and Destin, Fla. Thursday morning about 2 a.m. June 7, 2012.
A fisherman was surprised when he hauled up a prosthetic leg from the Gulf of Mexico, and even more surprised when he was able to find its owner.
The leg is emblazoned with the logo from the University of Kentucky and the school's wildcat mascot. Fisherman Matt Willingham says he contacted the manufacturer about finding the leg's owner.
