Ruthless Poacher on the Loose

It appears that a serious offense has been committed near Grundarfjörður, West Iceland. An exceptionally audacious criminal has had the gall to fish for halibut during the halibut fishing ban imposed by former Minister of Agriculture Jón Bjarnason, Skessuhorn reports today.

It however appears that the offender regretted his actions and decided to discard of the catch, the publication continues and posts a photograph of the halibut.

The offender could however have chosen a more tasteful place to dump the catch; they left it in the middle of town. Sanitation workers probably had to clean up the area.

The evidence will be placed in a cooler, Skessuhorn’s report concludes.
