Invasive Pacu Fish Caught In Concho River In Texas—Why Do People Need To Keep Flesh-Eating Fish And Killer Pythons?
The Facebook page of the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife reports that a Pacu fish was caught recently in the Concho River near San Angelo.
Above you see the Pacu that was caught.
A Pacu is a flesh-eating freshwater fish that should be living in South America where it belongs. The Pacu is a relative of the Piranha.
The person who caught this fish had been looking to catch catfish.
The Pacu is an invasive species that messes up natural ecosystems. People illegally dump these fish into streams and rivers. A lot of folks just have no sense.
The Federal Department of Agriculture has a National Invasive Species Information Center.
These efforts will continue so long as we don’t slash federal spending to the bone as part of the Ayn Rand budgeting advocated by Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan.
We can have our rivers filled up with flesh-eating fish to go along with all the Pythons now slithering about the U.S.
Of course the core issue is our fellow citizens who feel they need to keep killer fish and killer snakes as pets, and then–shockingly–find that they can’t manage keeping such creatures.
So they just let them loose on the rest of us.
I’d suggest to people that they read a book or take up a model train hobby instead of inflicting killer creatures upon the nation.
