giant catfish in Guangdong Reservoir

Each year, a few people will be drowned mysteriously in Huadu's Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently when the son of a certain official went swimming in the reservoir with his friend and were drowned that the secret was unravelled!

It's a 3 metre long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 metre wide! After cutting up the catfish people were surprised to find the remains of a man inside!

Because this was a huge incident, and the local government was afraid of the impact on local tourism, they imposed an embargo on the news, but people came away with these pictures taken on their cell phones of the man-eating fish!

Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters.

Update (Aug 15): Some readers have already raised doubts saying this is a whale shark (鲸鲨) instead.

Find a pic of whale shark on above, now you decide for yourself the killed monster more like a 30cm catfish or a 3 meter whale shark.
