 New Zealanders find 17-pound potato in 'feral' vegetable garden

 A New Zealand couple said they were cleaning out their vegetable garden when they found a massive potato that weighed more than 17 pounds and might be a new world record.



Colin and Donna Craig-Brown said they initially weren't even sure of what they had discovered under a few inches of dirt in their Waikato garden.

"I said to Donna this must be one of those white kumara that we grew," Colin Craig-Brown told Stuff.co.nz, "because some of them just grew massive here."


Craig-Brown said it only after he stabbed at it with a fork that he discovered the item was a potato.


"I said to Donna, 'It's a potato,' and she went, 'No.' I said, 'Yeah it is!'" he recalled to Newshub.


The couple said the potato, which must have been growing in their garden for a couple years before being discovered, weighed 17.4 pounds.


The couple applied to have the potato, which they dubbed "Doug," recognized as the world's largest by Guinness World Records. The current record-holder is an 11-pound spud grown by British gardener Peter Glazebrook in 2011.


Colin Craig-Brown admitted the home's "garden can sometimes get a bit feral. There are some parts of the garden you need to pack a lunch and advise your next of kin before heading in to."

Victoria Williams said her husband, Keith Williams, was playing in a tournament at Windance Golf Course in Gulfport when his ball ended up near a pond on the 12th hole.


The golfers captured video when an alligator strolled up to the ball, grabbed it in its jaws and carried the ball off into the pond.


The U.S. Golf Association's rules state such an incident should result in a free drop.


"Rule 16 covers when and how the player may take free relief by playing a ball from a different place, such as when there is interference by an abnormal course condition or a dangerous animal condition," the rules state.

Campbell told KTXL-TV he looked into the flooded street "and saw a little head bobbing up."


The Campbells said the kitten was struggling to keep its head above water and didn't look like it was going to be able to last much longer, so Skip waded out into the flood.


"It was about waist high. And I was just real careful, because it does drop off about 3 feet away from where I'm at," he said. "And that's where it drops into the creek bed."


Nancy Campbell filmed as her husband grabbed the feline by the scruff and carried it back to the house.


The Campbells said neighbors have expressed an interest in adopting the cat
