2 fishermen in Papua New Guinea bleed to death after piranha-like river fish bite off their genitals
(THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A piranha-like river fish that has been targeting fishermen's penises was discovered in the waters of Papua New Guinea. Sin Chew Daily reported that two local fishermen had bled to death after having their private organs bitten off by the fish's razor-sharp teeth. An experienced angler from Britain said it was believed the killer fish had started biting humans due to a lack of 'naturally occurring food'. Marine biologist Ian Middleton said the fish had the most human-like teeth on the bottom jaw he had ever seen. He said the fish could have possibly fed on insects and might have detected a chemical change in the water before swimming up the urine trail and biting human genitals.
