Well this pretty much guarantees I'm not going swimming in any lakes, streams, creeks, ponds, or swimmin' holes this summer.
--There's a rare fish in Papua New Guinea and other South Pacific countries called the pacu fish. Its nickname is the "BALL CUTTER" because it attacks men by . . . wait for it . . . BITING OFF and EATING THEIR TESTICLES.
--And a pacu fish just surfaced in a lake in southern Illinois.
--Last month, a fisherman caught one in Lake Lou Yaeger in Litchfield, Illinois. He thought it was a piranha but it didn't have sharp piranha teeth . . . it looked like it had HUMAN TEETH.
--The Illinois Department of Natural Resources examined it and determined it was a pacu fish. They assume the fish was illegally dumped in the lake . . . and they believe it was the only one, so it's allegedly safe to swim there.
--Supposedly, at least two fishermen in Papua New Guinea have died after the pacu ripped off their testes . . . and they bled to death.
