Twillingate Sun

January 1, 1953
(the paper stopped publishing on January 31, 1953)
  Strange Object

Mr. Harry Anstey, who in a half century of fishing has perhaps reclaimed more strange objects in his nets and trawls than most fishermen, had another peculiar catch during the present week. While hauling his seal net at Back Harbour one morning he brought to the surface his own billygoat! The animal had been killed by dogs a few days earlier and thrown into the waters of Twillingate Bight where with the prevailing winds at the time it should have moved on out to sea. But, like the ancient flint and steel musket and the battered plowshare, some queer fate brought it aboard of Mr. Anstey's boat. We presume we are not expected to congratulate him on his catch! Quite a strange coincidence, though, no matter how you look at it.
