If you catch a fish resembling a snake, possessing razor sharp teeth, officials say you should kill it and report it immediately.
In the wake of the first-ever reported northern snakehead fish found in the wild in Georgia, local wildlife officials are urging anglers to be on the lookout for the non-native, invasive species, and to kill the air-breathing fish if you catch one.
A northern snakehead fish was found in a private pond in Gwinnett County in early October, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and now local game wardens are telling the public to be on alert.
