The incident happened in the USA. The octopus bit a woman who wanted to take a joint photo with him.
Jamie Bisceglie - this is the name of an American - participated in fishing competitions. A photo contest was held along with them. When the girl realized that she could not become the best fisherman, she decided to at least make a first-class selfie. To do this, she planted the caught octopus on her face, pretending to kiss him. The animal did not appreciate such familiarity. Angry at the harassment of the octopuses, the woman grabbed her face.
There is no reliable evidence of an octopus attacking a person, a person can provoke them by biting, persistently trying to get in touch with the animal
Jamie had to undergo a course of treatment, as her cheek was very swollen after a bite. But the girl still had unusual pictures. Maybe they will win the photo contest.
Many zoopsychologists consider octopuses to be the most intelligent among all invertebrates in many respects: they can be trained, have a good memory, and distinguish geometric shapes
