NEWPORT, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Coast Aquarium released a giant Pacific octopus that got caught in a crab trap back in March.
A crab fisherman brought the 22-pound octopus to the aquarium. At the time, the octopus was underweight and had open wounds on her arms. Staff put her in a quarantine area and hand-fed her until she got better.
According to aquarium staff, they used sonar to find a rocky area to release the octopus.
