How the tiny animal got into the fish’s mouth will remain a mystery, although the angler thinks that rains may have forced the mole out of the ground.

“My best guess is the heavy rains may have pushed him out. Or a big Bird like a hawk, great blue heron, or an eagle which are all common in Missouri dropped it in the water. The birds will drop the live rodents in the water to use ad a trap to catch a bigger meal,” he wrote on Instagram.
