Is This Real??!!

I was surfing the net today when i came across this story. Im not sure if this was posted already, but apparently these people in indonesia captured a 49 ft 983 pound retic. Sure doesnt look like 49 feet but it is big indeed. It also includes a video, it seems rather docile for a 49 ft wild caught retic . If this story is true, that shatters the record, right? Thanks.

How the hell could they be over by 26 feet? Guess they just wanted the attention.

Yup, its was 21 ft or something. I heard a rumor that they kept that one available for public vewing and that they did have the actual animal, but it was in some tribes posession deep in the jungle? O well.
