I don't know weather to be happy or sad about this, it reminded me of that headline that was also false about the circus dwarf mortally trampolining (or however that's spelt) into the yawning hippo's mouth.
The plot thickens, the octopus has been found!Some interesting Twitter comments in the article

The octopus that caused a man to flip his car has been spotted.
A motorist was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving earlier this week after claiming he swerved to avoid the sea creature.
He remains in police custody accused of driving while under the influence of drugs.
Police in the South Hams arrested a man after an incident just before 5.30pm on the A381 between Salcombe and Kingsbridge.
Since the incident, the octopus in question has been spotted in a field where police found the car in a ditch.

She could have easily strangled it instead.Woman breaks up fight between dogs before realising one is a mountain lion
Once again a Mountain Lion is in the news:
A woman intervened in an apparent fight between two dogs, only to discover one of the combatants was in fact a mountain lion.
The Idaho woman leapt into the action after spotting her dog facing off with another animal.
“As she pulled the two animals apart, she realised that in one hand she held a juvenile male mountain lion, about 35 pounds, and not another dog as she expected,” said the Idaho department of fish and game in a statement.
The woman called for her husband to grab a gun from inside their house in Mackay, Custer County.
“Her husband responded and quickly dispatched the mountain lion as she held on to it,” added the IDFG.
The couple called local authorities and an officer from the department arrived to collect the carcass of the cougar.
It will be tested at a wildlife forensic laboratory “to determine if disease may have played a part in the lion’s behaviour”, the IDFG said.
The woman and her dog both suffered scratches from the mountain lion but were “doing fine”,” the department added........."
See whole story here:
And again we see clear cut abuse, and in fact murder of a Mountain Lion by a Human
- And you wonder why those hypothetical aliens spotted in those very real UFO vehicles refuse
to make direct contact with Humans - a species that kills animals that were minding their own
- And as far as the mountain lion dog fight - I bet the dog started it.
Now to show evidence of my hypothesis that the dog started the fight I want you watch this video whereShe could have easily strangled it instead.
The cat didn't seem too bothered & the dogs didn't do much other than circle & bark. The German Shepherd wasn't too keen to get close. They'd probably need another 6 dogs before doing anything but in typical dog fashion were happy to chase after it when it runs off & would probably claim this as a victory in chasing it off their patch.Now to show evidence of my hypothesis that the dog started the fight I want you watch this video where
we see a perfectly peaceable Mountain Lion, minding his own business, and then being set upon by two
obnoxious barking dogs who continue with deliberate harassment of the poor lion - And you will notice
how the lion showed restraint and did not attack, at least at first, when in fact he could have easily
beaten the dogs!
Dogs VS Mountain Lion!
See? He wasn't dead! How many of you were disbelievers?
No he doesn't - you have invented the quote.l award that scientist the prize for Most Desperate Stretch in a Grant Application: He claims to be studying fruit flies’ spuds for “evidence to prove the existence of global warming”.
I award you with a prize for desperate shoehorning.Walsh's research investigates how climate change affects fertility; he recently co-authored a study exploring the impacts of extreme temperatures on animal, plant and fungi reproduction, published Jan. 9 in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution.
His current work with fruit flies — which led to the image shared on Twitter — examines how temperature affects males' ability to produce viable sperm, a process known as spermatogenesis.
"How was work today, Dear?"When stretched out, each half of the testes measures over 0.08 inches (2 millimeters), "which is pretty much the whole length of the fly!" Walsh said.
