Maren said as she took a dip in the lake, she felt the fish grab her left foot. She said her entire foot was in the fish’s mouth.

“I felt my whole foot in its mouth,” she said. “I was screaming. I was so terrified.”

Maren was rushed to the hospital where she was treated for 25 bites that included nine deep lacerations and tendon damage, KARE reported. Some of the razor-sharp cuts went down to the bone, and are believed to have been caused by a muskie, doctors said.
