Lake Decatur is known for catching pirahna's out of. 5 I can remember. Last year a huge one was caught and the guy wanted to stuff it but the conservation department took it and never gave it back.

It should get the guy a heavy fine, what he is doing is cruel and an octopus
comes as close as I know to a thinking emotional being of any invertebrate.
Difficult to believe the guy could put the time and money into raising a rather
large octopus like that and then abuse it in that way but it takes all kinds.
