Octopus that predicted Japan's World Cup outcomes killed and sold as food

Man in Agra has Moustache 12 Feet Long

Rabio, a giant Pacific octopus, went on to rack up a ideal record by also predicting Japan's draw with Senegal and their defeat to Poland as they narrowly qualified as runners-up in their group.

The eight-armed mollusk proceeded to correctly predict Japan would defeat Colombia, draw with Senegal and lose to Poland - thrusting it into national spotlight. Despite losing to the Poles, Japan advanced courtesy of the fact that its players had received fewer cautions during the three group stage games.

But sadly, despite his 100% track record, Rabiot, who was caught in Obira, Hokkaido, has been unable to predict his team's result against Belgium - because he has become someone's dinner.

Meanwhile, the octopus credited with predicting the outcome of Japan's previous three matches had already met its demise ― sold as seafood, outlets reported.

Local fisherman Kimio Abe, Rabio's owner, told Japan's Mainichi that he was happy Rabio correctly predicted all three of Japan's group matches.

Pictures of what appeared to be the dismembered octopus were shared on social media, although it could not be confirmed that this was definitely Rabiot. "I'm glad that all the forecasts turned out correct and Japan moved on to the knockout stage", Abe said. Abe sold it to market, meaning the octopus could be sashimi by now.

In 2010, German octopus Paul correctly predicted six World Cup games, amassing an impressive overall tally of 12 correct match picks out of a total of 14.

Staff at the aquarium fed Paul mussels carrying the colours of either Germany or their opponents during the competition.
