Prohibit fans from throwing octopuses as part of a tradition at Red Wings games. As part of a 70-year-old sports tradition, die-hard Red Wings fans have thrown octopuses -- some live, some dead -- onto the rink after their team has scored a goal.

signed. When kept in captivity, you have to give octopi enrichment like toys to keep them healthy! These are not jelly like blobs, they are intelligent creatures, that don't even deserve to be killed for food, much less thrown on the ice like a demented party favor!
