                        worst part is the eel knew what was coming, so it $hit its self.

                          I don’t think it was still alive. I think that since he was messin’ around with the spine as he was cutting, he may have touched and triggered a few nerve receptors that caused the body to react downward from where he touched it. Like a reflex when the doctor hits your knee with a mini hammer. I’m not an expert so people who are, feel free to fact check me!

                                            Most people think harvesting the animal is messy but in reality it's clean, as long as you know what you're doing of course.

                                              I'm gonna guess that the 584 dislikes are the kind of people who believe Eel's have rights and aren't fans of hunting fresh nutrients.

Your knife needs more sharpening I suppose by the difficulty you had crying through the spine.
