Oklahoma Angler Catches Monster Snapping Turtle on Rod and Reel

Dave Harrell was trying for some catfish but landed this leviathan snapping turtle instead while on Oklahoma’s Eufaula Lake Sunday.

The Edmond resident said he released the shelled monster shortly after snagging it on his rod and reel.

I would too! Would you want that thing in the boat with you?

This picture has gone viral after Harrell posted it on the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Facebook page earlier this week.

What a catch!
