Catfish bites dog

There’s a five-foot-long catfish in the German town of Gueldendorf, and apparenty it is a complete and total badass. According to Ananova:

As well as emptying the lake of most of the other fish, it has now added a small dachshund dog to its list, reports the Berliner Kurier.

German TV quoted the dog’s owner as saying the dog had been swimming for a stick when it was suddenly pulled under the water and did not resurface.

Woof. The story also points out that “attempts to net the giant catfish, to shoot it and to use electroshocks to stun it have so far also failed.”
