No this isn’t a job for Dog the Bounty Hunter, more like your average fisherman.

Maryland country wildlife officials have officially put out a $200 bounty for a deadly breed of fish, native to Africa and Asia. The creature known as the Snakehead can breathe air and travel on land.

Snakeheads are known to destroy eco-systems and ravage all food sources available. They can live on land for up to four days. The foreign monsters were first spotted in Maryland waters in 2002 and have been a problem ever since.

Bass Proshops will be offering the giftcards and other prizes for each catch and kill of the viscous Snakehead.

Swimmers beware!
