Please Share This Story

A young boy named Charlie Clinton, who is only 11 years old, was surprised when he caught a strange fish with teeth that looked like they belonged to a human. He was fishing at a nearby pond in Oklahoma when he hooked the unusual fish.

A Pacu, a type of invasive South American fish related to Piranhas, was caught by Charlie while fishing. The fish had a row of teeth that resembled those of a human. Charlie’s mother Janna was sitting on the back porch when she heard her son calling out for her in excitement. Janna initially thought that Charlie was being dramatic until she saw the fish’s teeth up close.

She was just as surprised as her son. Janna mentioned that they were used to catching bass or catfish in the neighborhood pond and had never seen anything like this before. Charlie told his mom that it was a tough catch and that he did a great job reeling it in.

It is highly unlikely to find a Pacu fish in Oklahoma, and according to The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC), the fish is believed to be a pet that has been abandoned. ODWC has cautioned against dumping pet fish into waterways as it can cause harm to the local ecosystem.

A message was posted on social media addressing the individual who released a Pacu, a South American fish closely related to Piranha, into a neighborhood pond. The post expressed disapproval and admonished the person for their actions. The fish was caught by an 11-year-old named Charlie Clinton and returned to the pond.

However, later it was discovered that this was not the appropriate course of action, as Pacu are an exotic, invasive species that can harm local ecosystems.

The post advised against releasing unwanted pets in waterways and urged pet owners to act responsibly. The incident highlighted the importance of being aware of the impact of releasing non-native species into ecosystems.
