Fishermen who caught a giant catfish containing human remains? This shocking discovery has captured the attention of people all over the world.
Alfons Brzozowski and Marek Zhdanovich were just fishing on the Oder River in southwestern Poland when they caught the massive catfish. Little did they know that their catch would be a groundbreaking discovery. The fish was more than 3.5 meters long and weighed almost 200 kg, but what was inside it shocked the fishermen even more.
Upon opening the catfish, the two Poles found fragments of human bones, as well as a metal badge and buttons from the uniform of SS officers. The discovery immediately sparked an investigation to establish the origin of the remains. Experts have determined that the man found in the fish died during the early 1940s, which was the time of the Nazi occupation of Poland. Additionally, the fish was estimated to be between 90 and 110 years old.
Although the investigation couldn’t determine the exact cause of death of the officer, some experts have suggested that a catfish could have been responsible. Zoologists say that some individuals of this species can eat cats or dogs, and the largest ones often attack people. Roman Yusupov, a former hunter and prize-winner of the Yaroslavl region in sport fishing, says that catfish pounce rapidly and drag their victims to the depths.
There have been many stories about catfish attacking people, dogs, deer, and even motorboats in the past. People who have witnessed such incidents are convinced that catfish are hunters. However, some believe that these fish are scavengers and that their attacks on people are rare.
The discovery of the human remains inside the catfish has sparked a lot of discussion and debate. It has also led people to question the nature of these powerful predators and their behavior. The discovery of the remains of a German officer inside the fish has added another layer of intrigue to this mystery. The story of the two Polish fishermen has captured the attention of people all over the world, and it will continue to be a topic of discussion for a long time to come.
