We’ve heard plenty of stories about people trying to push a beached whale back into the ocean, but beachgoers rescuing a large squid is a new one on us. But that happened in Delray Beach, TCPalm reports (it even has video).
After bystanders wrestled it into a cooler, a lifeguard took the 3-foot cephalopod, which was spitting out ink by the cupful, out to neck-deep water and released it.
“He’ll probably get eaten by a shark,” the lifeguard told TCPalm. “But I’d rather have [the squid] die in the ocean where it’s supposed to.”
