A woman from Washington State who was participating in a salmon fishing derby spotted a small octopus and decided to stick it on her face and have her photo taken.

Although Bisceglia eventually freed herself from the octopus, she bled profusely for 30 minutes afterwards.
“There’s still a pus pocket and there’s a spot under my chin,” she said.
