A Giant Squid……

is pictured on the tiscali homepage. I am appalled. The giant squid, poor thing should have been left alive if at all possible. In the text there is no hint of regret at the giant squid having been caught!

Surely any science that is not detached observation is bad science – ignorant science. Poking a dead mass is not very clever. Its wonderful to imagine how such a creature would look beneath the waves, did it have regular habitat, did it ever encounter other giant squid, what was its level of cunning and self preservation? I wonder how developed its vision was, its brain would process a vast amount of sensory input. Would it find another to procreate?

I find the pictures sad and sickening.
