Samson, just don't go do anything crazy now.
that's so funny...
i was going to ask if samson was bereft
He's probably going to be perverted with the creature.
Giant Pacific Octopi are highly intelligent creatures who have performed very well solving extremely complex mazes in laboratory settings. (Search YouTube "octopus" for videos of their accomplishments.)
There are 7 Billion human beings on earth, and our numbers are still increasing; but octopi of all kinds are decreasing in numbers due to overfishing and "sport" killings like this one.
The point of expressing outrage isn't that anyone will harm this young man who killed the octopus; the point is to make sure that the diving community becomes very well aware that it is immoral to kill an intelligent being of any species without due cause.
We here in the Pacific Northwest also do not tolerate the casual killing of whales, dolphins, or sea lions.
immoral to kill an intelligent being of any species without due cause
We are the dominate species. Tell that to tigers, lions and bears
Talk about an overreaction.
Octopus meat is tough. you have cook it a while. the ink is the best for tattoos though. I hope he saves the ink glands and give them to a local tattoo artist.
Maybe Bear Grylls will hire him. A shame for the Octo though. Bobcats are a mystic sight around here. You hear them, see their sign but to get a glimpse...that's special. I often wonder in how many generations descriptions of rarer species will have to suffice in lieu of the experience of seeing or interacting with such an animal gone extinct.
This is sad news
The diver should have been killed instead of the octopus, for a change!
Why people have to kill every living creature on this sad planet? Too sad.
very true, I have been both a dive instructor and commercial diver and this is like going and killing someones dog
