All that I see was the octo not really bothered to move from its place when the man was in the tank trying to pry if off the bottom. Same thing happens when the octo was on top of the guy.
This is pitiful, but not terrifyingly disgusting.
It is when you consider they were trying to bite it where the brain is. They were trying to kill the octopus.....on such a large one I doubt they could, so they likely inflicted a brain injury on it. This is cruel and if it had been done in NZ under the Animal Welfare Act (1999) they would be liable on

exceeding 6 months or to a fine not exceeding $25,000 or to
(b) In the case of a body corporate to a fine not exceeding $125,000."
