Eagle rays are the new spinach!

This is so fucked up:

MIAMI (Reuters) - An eagle ray leaped onto a boat off the Florida Keys on Thursday and stabbed a woman with its barb, knocking her to the deck and killing her, a Florida wildlife investigator said.

"It's a bizarre accident," said Jorge Pino, an agent with the Flnoorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The woman and her family were aboard a boat in the Atlantic
Ocean, off the city of Marathon in the Florida Keys, he said.
"A large ray jumped out of the water and collided with the victim and somehow the barb penetrated some part of her body, which caused her to fall back and hit her head on some portion of the vessel," Pino said. "We don't know exactly which one of those things caused her death."

Local media said the animal's barb had impaled the woman through the neck.

Eagle rays are fucking fed up and they're not taking any more crap. Got it?

The rays are just playing catch up. Sturgeon have been at this for years.
