Thinking of Swimming in the Ohio River? Think Again.
A local angler, fishing in the Ohio, caught an 18-inch red-bellied piranha. You read that right. A piranha! Those amazonian lovelies that can skeletonize a cow in 2.3 seconds. That's a pic of one as my icon. Nice, innit? A fish and wildlife rep identified the fish and said it was most likely from someones private aquarium. This happened about 8 miles from where I live! What's next? Alligators in the New York sewers?
