If you have been keeping up with what’s new on the internet you might have seen this video that has been doing the rounds.

This is a video of Mark Scott of http://divingvietnam.com/ harassing an octopus.

Mark is/was an instructor for SSI and thanks to this video he has now had his instructor’s licence terminated. You can read more about it here.

Dive instructors and dive masters are ambassadors to the aquatic realm. They should be showing how to interact with the wild life properly. Those that harm, harass, or destroy the wild life should be punished. He knew what he was doing was against the standards that all dive professionals adhere to. I wonder if there will be some kind of legal prosecution, however I doubt that there are any laws that cover this.  You may have previously read my post on touching animals, if not, check it out.
