Video: Octopus tentacles shoot out of rock pool as fishermen use controversial fork method to catch creature

Fishermen have been accused of ‘brutal’ behaviour after a gruesome video showed them using FORKS to catch an octopus. However, some viewers claim the fishermen’s method is “natural”. The footage, shot in East Java, Indonesia, has had 23,000 hits but viewers are undecided on whether the alternative fishing method is “inhumane”. In the film, fishermen are seen digging up in a shallow rock pool, using a fork to work out where the water is deeper. They then insert food, believed to be chicken, on a line. As soon as a tentacle reaches up, they grab the animal and tug it up. Watch the video here 14:43
