    Catfish definitely don't get that big, and besides, it wouldn't eat a person...would it?

    Yeah, but whale sharks are not supposed to eat humans either, and that one was not even fully grown.

    Yes they can.
    Wels Catfish in Europe can grow up to a possible 3 meters, same as that man-eating catfish/whale shark.

    With a possible total length up to 3 m (ten feet) and a maximum weight of over 150 kg (330 lbs) it is the second largest freshwater fish in its region after the sturgeon.

    The record sized was 3 m (9.9 ft) long fish, caught in the Danube in Romania, weighing about 220 kg (440 lb
    The Mekong giant catfish in the Mekong River can also grow up to 3 meters.

    Putting the issue of whether it's a whaleshark or a giant catfish aside, I just wanna to say I love how these people just get this great catch, and cut it open in the middle of what appears to be a park (and by love I mean the complete opposite of course).

    Anyway, did anyone else notice the story says they found a man inside the stomach, but none of the pictures show anything of the such??

    Now here's a real man eating fish:
