Octopus Wrestling...A Strange Sport Indeed!

One very clever Everything Octopus reader enlightened me to the existence of a crazy sport that was hip in the swingin' sixties called OCTOPUS WRESTLING!

While I in no way endorse this behavior towards octopuses or any other animal, I thought it was interesting and worth a read. Enjoy...

Octopus wrestling is just what it sounds like, really. A diver grapples with an octopus in shallow water and drags it to the surface. Divers compete to bring in the largest octopuses, and sometimes other creatures of the sea.

This sport was most popular in the 1960s, and there was even an annual contest known as the World Octopus Wrestling Championships.
