Goonch Attack-No, Seriously!

And you think sharks have a bad reputation...try being a Goonch.

Turns out these voracious critters found in rivers on and around Napal and India have been scarfing up local swimmers like Pez:

An 18-year-old Nepali disappeared in the river last year, dragged down by something described as like an “elongated pig”.

But the first victim of a goonch attack was thought to have been a 17-year-old Nepalese boy.He was killed in April 1988 as he cooled himself in the river.

Witnesses said he was suddenly pulled below the surface.Three months later a young boy was dragged underwater as his father watched helplessly.

Editors Note: We're in the process of designing a Goonch proof cage system, no, seriously!
