A retired bus driver hooked a 10-inch Pacus, a cousin of the piranha at a Jersey Park this weekend. Needless to say it's freaking some people out. It looks like it has human teeth!

It happened at Third Ward Veterans Memorial Park in Passaic on Saturday.

The Pacu made headlines last year after it attacked swimmers' testiclesin coastal waters between Sweden and Denmark. "They bite because they're hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth," Henrik Carl, a fish expert at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, told The Local.

Professor Peter Rask Moller told CNN:

Of course, this is half a joke since it is very unlikely that you would actually meet one here and that it would bite you. It's up to people themselves how careful they want to be. I'll keep my shorts on, though.
