A fisherman may have tipped the scales after catching what may be the world’s biggest Opah fish - tipping the scales at more than 12 stone.
After a gruelling 30 minute battle with the mighty fish, fisherman, Joe Ludlow, 47, managed to haul the whopper on board. Weighing in at 181 pounds, the mammoth catch managed to outweigh the current record by 18 pounds.
But in bizarre twist, two other anglers alongside Joe also managed an unprecedented feat by each catching an Opah on the same day.

An Assessment and Treatment Approach for Childhood Animal Abusers 
"Following the success of the AniCare program, we produced the AniCare Child Assessment and Treatment Approach for Childhood Animal Abuse. This program is used by mental health professionals working with children under age 17 in agencies, domestic violence organizations, hospitals, schools and private practice as well as other professionals who work with children and their families day care providers, social service workers, probation department and other law enforcement officials, teachers, clergy, animal control and humane society personnel, and veterinarians. AniCare Child is the first published treatment approach to focus exclusively on juvenile cruelty to animals. This newly revised 124-page practitioner’s handbook provides comprehensive strategies and practical suggestions for assessing and treating childhood animal abuse. AniCare Child can be used as the primary treatment focus or as an ancillary treatment. (Note that the ASI also has available The AniCare Model aimed at treating animal abusers over age 17.)Encompassing a number of theoretical perspectives - cognitive-behavioral, attachment theory, and psychodynamic - AniCare Child provides detailed and practical suggestions for assessment and treatment. It describes four basic steps in making as assessment and enumerates the factors to consider.The three therapeutic tasks of treatment - connection, expression, and corrective intervention - organize the approach to treatment. Clinical case examples, a variety of exercises, and other tools, such as use of projective material and puppet role play, are presented. AniCare Child also addresses assessing and treating children who witness animal abuse and includes a section on “Working with Parents.”The ASI offers certification in the AniCare and AniCare Child approach. We are also certifying counselors to help us in giving AniCare and AniCare workshops.The development of AniCare Child is based on documented clinical experience, an examination of effective and reliable treatments for children that are relevant to this topic, and consultation with and review by experts. AniCare Child is designed for two audiences: (1) child mental health professionals working in agencies, domestic violence organizations, hospitals, schools, and private practice; and (2) other professionals who work with children and their families:  daycare providers, social service workers, probation department and law enforcement officials, teachers, clergy, animal control and humane society personnel, and veterinarians. AniCare Child may be used independently by individuals experienced in working with children. Many people, however, feel better prepared if they receive training in the use of the AniCare Child approach.”
