The body of an octopus has been found during a litter pick near the top of England's highest mountain.
Dave Ascough, who leads mountain walks, found the 20cm (8in) cephalopod mollusc 10m (33ft) from the top of Scafell Pike in Cumbria.

The illegal tree octopus trade in getting out of hand. These endangered critters are being taken out of their natural habit of the Pacific Northwest and smuggled into other countries for the sick pleasure of the fashion industry.

Save the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus.

Very likely a bird did take it there, but what is shocking is this:

Volunteers removed 10 bags of rubbish from the mountain during the pick


What is wrong with people? Anyone caught dropping rubbish should be banned from natural spaces, send them back to their ghettos!
There were about 15 teenagers the other day in the park "hanging out', when they left the place was littered with rubbish, this is our next generation, their parents should be frogged marched to the area and made to pick up the rubbish in front of their kids, show an example on how its done for a change.
A little bit of respect for nature is all what is called for, is that really too much to ask in a day and age when humans are polluting everything in their path?

Why does everyone always overlook the obvious?
Scafell Pike is obviously the site of a transdimensional vortex, the other end of which lies in an oceanic octopus den.

Absolutely!

No, your government should be flogged for making it so that no one cares what they do as long as they get their government check.

We are not a communist country, so people have to be held accountable too for their actions.

Yes, but what bird would do that?

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.
