Mekong Giant Catfish

Isn't it incredible when a member of a critically endangered species is found?

Doesn't it make it that much more amazing when it is the finest example of the species ever encountered?

And isn't it awesome when people then kill it and eat it?

People suck.

That is one huge fish! Thats too bad they didn't let it go back in to the wild.

It is sad that they didn't let it go. But telling a Thai fisherman to not eat a 646 lb catfish is like trying to persuade a drug addict to not take a hit of a 50 pound rock of crack. Very tough to do...

Animals are for our purposes. Too bad they're a different species.

But a catfish that big - it's probably not juicy & tender enough to be enjoyed...
