Eagle v octopus: Canadians rescue bird locked in battle with giant mollusc
Employees at a fish farm in Vancouver intervened when an eagle tried to eat a large octopus, resulting in a battle

A bald eagle on Canada’s west coast has learned that its eyes may be bigger than its stomach after it was nearly drowned by an octopus it tried to eat.

After hearing shrieks coming from the water on the north-western tip of Vancouver Island, employees at a fish farm investigating the noises happened upon a bird and cephalopod locked in battle.

The octopus, which had turned a deep crimson, had wound its tentacles tightly around the eagle, which was floating helplessly at the surface.
