    What happened to GT's that were gaffed? Eaten or Released? Not judging.

    ​Almost all the GTs were released, except for the ones that were badly injured. One agressive GT swallowed a popper whole and we couldn't remove the popper. It was bleeding badly as well thus we had to bring it back and donate to the villagers.

    ​I had a GT die on me before, we ate it - Deep Fried and Masala.
