Local fare killed locally is fair. The Octopus That Almost Ate Seattle. This is a great read about a young man in Seattle who decided to hunt and eat a Great Pacific Octopus. This may sound vicious but the reality is the Octopus are thriving. In a city like Seattle where local/farm to table stuff is all the rage; it is interesting then when faced with the brutality of the kill such visceral reactions happen. I applaud this young man for later taking a stand for the cephalopods and helping to preserve them in certain areas. I think a great quote in the article is “the advisory group was faced with a question that seemed begging for mockery: Must a species be endangered to justify protection, or was just liking to look at it reason enough?”
