Don’t Try This At Home: Girl Catches Piranhas with Her Hand [VIDEO]

PIRA

File under: bad ideas.

I’m all for creative methods of fishing, but this bare-handed piranha grab looks like nothing but trouble.

In the video below, a young girl holds a piece of raw meat underwater as bait to catch piranhas. I don’t know much about fishing for piranhas, but this looks like a sure-fire way to lose a digit or two.

YouTube user FromHeretoThere uploaded the video today. We don’t know much else about where or when it was filmed. It was likely filmed somewhere in South America’s sprawling Amazon, where piranhas are common.

Piranhas are boney fish that reportedly have a potent fishy taste.

Have you ever eaten piranha? What does it taste like?
