The Herald reports:
Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated football fans by correctly predicting results at this year’s World Cup, died Tuesday.
Paul had reached the octopus old age of 2 years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.
Paul seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but he did not make it through the night.
I guess his chances of getting to predict two world cups were not great. I wonder what animal will predict the rugby world cup correctly next year?
