(retraction we just found out a week later after posting this was in fact a whale shark thought to be a catfish, sorry for the mixup)
For all those crazy guys who go 'noodling'
Each year, a few people were drowning or disappearing mysteriously in Huadu's Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently, when the son of a government official went swimming, in the reservoir and was drowned, that the secret was revealed.
It is a 3 meter (9.8ft) long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 meter (3.3ft) wide!
After cutting up the catfish, people were surprised to find the remains of another man inside!
Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters. So to all my Tenn buddies, no noddling round these parts if you don't want to be another statistic
