WHAT IS THIS GUY'S PROBLEM!? When hundreds of giant squid wash up on your beach, you DON'T cut them up to sell to locals! You find out how to contact a scientist!

Not just that, something had to cause death. Possibly a new virus...

But like they said, it could have been post spawning death. It's true he should have had a scientist take a look to see if that's the case though.... Peninsula gets dead squid.. and we here in the sound get.. oil spills -.-

That would make a good crop of Calamari! But I've been to the Royal BC Musuem many times I guess I didn't look hard enough to find the squids beak. Neat story.

Scientists aren't interested in them. If they were actual Giant Squids, the man would probably be looking at an incredibly heafty fine.
