R. I. P. Scotty

Just a week after being caught at Buffalo Springs Lake in Texas, "Scotty the Pacu" has died. The freaky fish with human-looking teeth is native to the Amazon area of South America. Lake officials believe the fish was dumped in the lake because it grew too large for a tank. Other pacus have started popping up in other lakes across the country, the latest being found in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The ransom for the remaining pacu is $100.
