PETA’s latest breaking eyewitness investigation found that the limbs of live octopuses are being crudely chopped off with kitchen knives and the tails of shrimps and lobsters torn off and served next to their flailing heads—all for the sake of diners‘ entertainment.
As you can see in this shocking video, PETA captured footage of one octopus—nicknamed „Pearl“ by an observer—as she was pinned down and her tentacles were cut off. The writhing tentacles were served to restaurant-goers as a dish called „sannakji,“ but Pearl’s horror was far from over. Terrified and trying desperately to escape, she was pushed aside until her remaining limbs were ordered. After every last arm and leg were hacked off, kitchen staff would then rip out her intestinal contents and leave her to die.
