Eddie the dog-eating eel has killed a goose, according to reports from the Australian press.

Eddie, who lives in the Yarra River, Warburton, reportedly came out of the water and took a swallowed a goose which was being fed by an angler on a trout farm.
\"The water swirled around and the goose disappeared - Eddie the eel just swallowed him up...\"
Farm manager Gary Whales told the Herald Sun that the man was white as a ghost after witnessing the incident:
\"He was fishing on the Yarra in Warburton and feeding bread to the geese and apparently the water swirled around and the goose disappeared - Eddie the eel just swallowed him up.\"
The Herald says that Wales dismissed claims that the story was invented as a publicity stunt.
