Octopus News: Thousands of Dead Octopuses Wash Up on Portugal Beach


Thousands of dead octopuses have washed up on a beach in northern Portugal, in what is being called an environmental disaster.
They cover a 5-mile stretch of Vila Nova de Gaia beach - no reason has yet been found for their appearance.
The authorities have warned the public not to eat them.

Um...generally when thousands of animals mysteriously turn up dead, sane people don't eat them. I dunno, maybe they do things differently in Portugal.

You can view the carnage in the video below...sad :(
NOTE: Video is incorrectly labeled "squid", however you will see that they are octopuses.
