Squid Attacks Submarine In Greenpeace Video

Jesse Ferreras | October 14, 2014 | Canada
Calling Captain Nemo! A group of squid were seen attacking a submarine in a Vine video posted by Greenpeace last week, in a moment that was reminiscent of Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." In the video, which was posted as part of Cephalopod Awareness Days, squid are seen setting upon a research sub in the Bering Sea. There were so many of them that twice, a squid was pulled into the vessel's propellers, shorting fuses and disabling its movements, Greenpeace marine biologist John Hocevar told CBC News. He went on to say that squid are known for eating "pretty much anything they find," so it's possible they were trying to dine on the sub. This wouldn't be the first time that squid have attacked a human vessel. In 2003, a giant squid attached itself to the hull of a French sailboat that was taking part in the Jules Verne Trophy, a competition in which sailors travel around the world as fast as possible, BBC News reported. "I saw a tentacle through a porthole," sailor Olivier de Kersauson said at the time. "It was thicker than my leg and it was really pulling the boat hard."
