Woman Attacked by Musky in Winnipeg River

A Winnipeg woman is recovering after being attacked by a muskie while swimming with her family at a fishing resort.

The attack happened on July 25 at the North Star Village, in Minaki, north of Kenora.

Kim and Terry Driver, seasonal regulars and experienced anglers, went for a swim to cool off.

Kim Driver says she was standing in water up to her chest when she felt a sharp pain in her leg, and when she looked down she saw what looked like an alligator head.

A muskellunge or muskie, more than one metre long, had grabbed hold of her calf.
