Wellington: A New Zealand bushman on a diving trip killed a giant octopus ‘humanely’ by chewing off its head, and then posted his feat on Youtube.
In the video, survival expert Josh James, wearing a camouflage wetsuit, holds a live octopus up to the camera before proceeding to chew its head off neatly and again holding the creature up in triumph.
Before bearded Josh begins he emerges with it out of the water and begins: “Just got an octopus today, these things are really good eating”.
Then he suddenly says, “To kill them, you bite them right between the eyes…” – and bites down hard on its head.
He concludes, “Because that’s where the brain is.”
