NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)- How bizarre is this? A slimy octopus somehow slithered its way onto a New Orleans sidewalk.

Nick Williams, a local actor and opera singer, told News with a Twist Reporter Kenny Lopez that he was walking on Dauphine and Port streets in the Marigny when he spotted the octopus.

“I was walking home around 8 p.m. last night and thought, oh no someone didn’t clean up after their dog, only to realize it was a real octopus.  I didn’t want to touch that slimy thing,” Williams said.

Williams left it there on the sidewalk after taking a picture and posting it to his Instagram account.

Any guesses on where the octopus came from?  That’s still a mystery!
