Actually, from what I've read, the catfish is alive and headed for one of the giant aquariums at Cabela's, so it should be well cared for.

Cabelas is a hunting/fishing equipment store.

They have a huge one in Kansas City Kansas where they have enormous aquariums full of freshwater sports fish.

This is where the giant catfish was to be displayed.
