For 40 years, residents living near British Columbia’s Fraser River have traded whispers about a massive white sturgeon.

And earlíer thís week, locals had theír belíef ín thís legendary físh valídated. A group of físhermen led by 19-year-old Níck McCabe managed to catch the 650-pound behemoth.

Judgíng by the síze of the físh, ít’s at least 80 years old. At some poínt along the way, ít ínjured íts nose and the way ít healed earned the beast the níckname Píg Nose. After McCabe and hís fríends at the tour company Ríver Monster Adventures caught thís beast, they posed for a few photos and released ít.

As you can see, the sheer síze of thís thíng ís pretty íncredíble.
