Octopus Attack on Sub

Life imitates Art. This story describes an actual giant octopus attacking a small submarine off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Captured on video, sorry, no link to that.

    I saw this link that has the video.
    When I first saw this article on slashdot, I was thinking is was some 600 pounder attacking a Los Angeles sub looking for a nice tasty sperm whale… Imagine my disapointment when I found out the octopus was a merely going after an ROV.

    Now, was the video taken by the ROV, or who was it that took the video?
