Honestly, we thought it was a dead armadillo floating in the river on 6/11/2010 but upon closer inspection it was a freak'n carbon fiber hook-arm prosthesis (no offense to owner meant). I've come across many things on many rivers but what more can I say? I'm completely stumped!

I'm sure its expensive and somewhat important so please claim it. It shouldn't be very hard to show proof of ownership....

I was on the river last June during a race that involved many people with previous injuries. Does it look like it may have been out there for awhile, perhaps dislodged by this years high water? Here's a link to an article about the last year's race with some contact names and numbers. Maybe they did the race again this year as well.

They just had a veterans kayak club down there...I bet it was from that. The coordinators name is Kim and she's friends with EJ...but I don't know how to get a hold of her.
Here I am, and yes, we just had a group of vets from Team River Runner on Pumphouse...but we came and went with the same number of arms.
Thanks for grabbing it and posting it. I will put the word out and see if we can't get it back to the paddler, and yeah...the prostethics are expensive. But they can still hold onto a booty beer, which the owner will need to drink (and give the rest of the 6-pack to the finder!).
