It’s not unknown for strange things to be dredged up from the ocean, but this one was incredible. The fishermen hadn’t been expecting something of this size; surely it was a record? But after their initial amazement wore off, there was the question of what they should do with the monster.

The creature in question was caught by a group of Russian fishermen. Although the sailors haven’t been named, they come from Iturup on one of the Kuril islands. The crew were amazed by the giant they pulled from the Pacific Ocean, and rightly so.
