The monster fish were found scattered all over the city, three dead specimen were discovered on the lawns, but one was found alive wriggling in the parking lot of a store. The store's manager immediately put the fish, which was about a 30cm  long, into a container of water and called officials. Wildlife experts are trying to calm down the locals, saying that despite it's scary look there is no danger from the fish.

Trying to explain the situation Mike Taras of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said: "The answer is probably gulls. Gulls are picking them out of the Chena River with their bills and then dropping the squirming critters while in flight. Arctic lampreys are rarely seen as they live in the mud underwater as juveniles for several years. Besides, their body shape and feeding habits make them difficult to catch."

The Arctic lamprey is usually about 13 to 32 centimetres but specimens have been known to reach 63 centimetres and 200 grams in weight. The adult is generally a parasitic feeder that attaches to other fish species and sucks its blood and other bodily fluids. What is even more interesting is that lamprey is a commercially important edible fish with fatty flesh, it's a seasonal delicacy in Alaska.
