Thursday Thoughts 16.1.13

TT 16.1.14

A monster man-eater fish, has been tracked down by a British angler.

The monster fish is called a goonch and can grow to six foot, regularly weighing more than 11 stone.

It lives in the Great Kali River, between India and Nepal – a stretch of water which is often used to dispose of human bodies after Hindu funeral rites.

Some think this may have lead the goonch to start poaching live human victims.

Biologist and expert fisherman Jeremy Wade decided to delve beneath the surface of the Kali River to track down this mysterious beast for a Channel Five documentary.

He said: “The locals have told me of a theory that this monster has grown extra large on a diet of partially-burnt corpses.

“It has perhaps got this taste for flesh by feasting on remains of funeral pyres.

“There will be a few freak individuals that grow bigger than the other ones and if you throw in extra food, they will grow even bigger.”

Mr Wade managed to snare one goonch which weighed 161lb and was nearly 6ft long – the biggest of its species ever caught.

He said: “If that got hold of you, there would be no getting away.”

The goonch is thought to be responsible for the disappearance of an 18-year-old Nepali last year, who was dragged under the water by a creature described as a “elongated pig”.

Two earlier mysterious river deaths are also considered to be the work of the killer fish.

Now the scary part number two, after the cremation of body, those who accompany it to the crematorium are bound to take a bath at the place, before leaving the crematorium, some bunk it, but most dont.

so the local authorities should post boards on the attack prone areas to use buckets to take out water, in place of taking dips and getting mauled or eaten!

  1. Wow – I love watching Jeremy Wade, and River Monsters – this better make it into one of the episodes! It looks like a really large catfish, but the teeth look way to severe!

    • it is a catfish, but in place of eating the leftovers its killing and eating live human beings, not too many i hope, but a couple of murders have been suspected to be commited by them.
