Octopus killing a seagull - THE KRAKEN WAKES

Octopus killing a seagull off Ogden Point breakwater


I love octopuses. Smart, powerful, adaptive, and deadly.


These are the first ever photos of a Giant Pacific Octopus catching and killing a Glaucous-winged seagull.


And they provide two important lessons: One, always carry a camera with you because you may happen upon a scientifically important event. And two, keep an eye out for the unusual.


I loved finding and booking this story for my local CBC morning show, On The Island. 


Take a listen to Ginger Morneau, the woman who took these photos.
Here she is speaking with CBC On The Island host, Gregor Craigie.







And this is where I found this story.
