    Piranha found in children's petting pool

    Workers at a Berlin aquarium were shocked to find a piranha had been released into a pool in which children are encouraged to stroke fish.

    Bild newspaper reported that the piranha had already started attacking other fish when aquarian staff spotted it.

    Curator Rainer Kaiser said the 'petting pool' had to be emptied so the carniverous fish could be caught and transferred to another tank.

    Thank goodness no children were hurt. I wonder if the person who put them there was ignorant or just plain evil!
