OLYMPIA -- Hunting giant Pacific octopuses in Puget Sound could be banned or restricted under regulations the state Fish and Wildlife Commission is considering at its meeting today and tomorrow in Olympia.
The commission reviewed the rules after a diver killed an octopus last October in a popular diving area near Alki Point in Seattle.
The commission also is deciding whether to change rules to permanently allow ranchers and farmers in Eastern Washington to kill a wolf that is attacking their livestock.
