The Goonch: Vicious Human-Eating Catfish

The Great Kali is a river that flows along the India-Nepal border. Swimming in this river are mutant, vicious catfish that has been terrorizing natives who fear swimming in the same waters with the goonch which eats people.
This giant catfish, scientists fear, originally a bottom feeder scavenger, began eating humans after developing a taste for flesh from feeding on burnt corpses dumped into the river after funerals.
Investigated by English biologist, Jeremy Wade and slated for a television documentary, the goonch is considered an endangered species.
Reports of swimmers being dragged underneath the surface are documented and well-known.
