Catfish on Human Predators

Rate this post

Since 1998 until 2007, three people drowned suddenly vanished in the Great Kali River, a river that crossed the border between Nepal and northern India. This is very strange because the area was not a crocodile habitat and other aquatic predators. Finally, from witnesses who saw the incident, a child is seen being dragged into the water by something that looks like a pig-sized length. After that, the victim was never seen again, alive or dead. Similarly, the remains of the body or clothes. These cases lead Jeremy Wade, a British biologist to observe what is in the river. Because the attacks occur only in certain areas, along about 6 to 8 kilometers. The area was, according to population, is an area where they used to melarungkan bodies of their brethren who have died after a fire. After researching using a depth gauge, he made sure no holes are found, meaning that attacks are not caused by the turbulence that occurs in the water. Sure enough, shortly after that, from a distance of about 1 kilometer from the last attack, a bull who was drinking at the river that only has a depth of 1 meter was attacked and dragged by something from the water. “Whatever is capable of dragging the buffalo for it certainly has the size and weight as heavy as 90 to 140 kilograms,” Wade said, as quoted from Discovery, December 29, 2010.

In underwater research, Wade found goonch catfish, catfish have a similar length of one meter. But the fish was caught failing. Further research, it is known that there are some groups goonch and six of them the size of a human. After failing to catch fish with fishing equipment, Wade tried to provoke the appearance of the fish using a pile of firewood and prepared as if the former cremated the bodies of people died. It turned out a success. A goonch measuring 1.8 meters long and weighs 75.5 pounds, or three times heavier than the other goonch successfully captured. These fish are thought to be big and strong enough to eat a small child, but not big enough to drag and eat a buffalo. From the description of the population, Wade concludes that the ‘catfish’ has mutated into a taste of human flesh. Fish also continue to grow into a giant after eating undercooked meat remains of human bodies dilarungkan and drowned in the river bed.
