    It was only a couple of years ago on a family outing to the PNW. We had hiked almost 5 miles into the woods. The trees were so tall you couldn't see their tops and the light had a difficult time making it to the ground in anything less than a shadow.
    We were told to be on the look-out for bear and coyote but not for this creature. At first we couldn't believe our eyes; if there weren't 5 of us to confirm the sighting we ourselves would never have believed it.
    We counted all eight appendages moving in a chilling pattern that moved it across the tree as if it were submerged. It made no sound unless you allowed your imagination to give the creature's movement some kind of slithering vibration as it hugged the various types of bark as we gazed at it's movement.
    Someone said it was the Great Pacific North West Tree Octopus and that they were rarely ever seen and they were endangered. We followed the creature for what seemed to be miles when suddenly we saw it. At least 10 feet tall with hair and claws that looked as sharp as swords, it was Sasquatch. How could this be possible? It's not. So I would do the same for the Octopus as I do for Sasquatch.....nothing.

    Well I've already adopted three of them, but the damn things keep eating the neighborhood cats. Also, because I live in the Northeast, I have to take them in for the winter. One of them ate my Christmas Tree. As far as what I intend to do in the future, I say nuke 'em.

    The University of Washington started a Bigfoot-octopus adoption program where families of Bigfeet are given a tree octopus to care for.  The octopi in turn squirt ink onto the camera lenses of people who try to photograph a Bigfoot.  It's a mutually beneficial relationship that is helping to preserve both species.

    lol  I actually looked this up.  Got my laugh for the day.  It would be kinda neat though if they were real.
