That or someone had pet sharks and an octo, they died because the person couldnt take care of them, and then dumped them in the river

That might be a possibility with the sharks but an odd way to dispose of an octopus.

Maybe, there's a hole in one of the tanks in the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, and some of the critters have escaped into the river.:wink:
