Octopus found in Restroom

The Equinox Bar, on the 22nd floor of the Hyatt-Regency, was the only revolving restaurant/bar in San Francisco, until it closed in 2007.

In April 1978, a large octopus was found in the women's restroom of the bar. I haven't found any follow-ups to this story explaining why someone left an octopus there.

So the incident remains a mystery, just like the porpoise found in the men's restroom of Glasgow Central Station in 1965.

You know there has gotta be a list of such things found in public bathrooms, just like a list I once saw about things found on airplanes after the passengers have left. The strangest thing I remember from that were artificial legs. I mean, how does one get off and miss leaving that behind?

KDP, the only way I can see a man leaving a toilet and leaving his prosthetic legs behind is in a gurney. The guy went to the toilet, removed his legs because they hurt, saw blood, called his friend who was waiting outside the bathroom, the friend hurried in with the help of a waiter, the waiter called an ambulance and the legs were forgotten in the commotion.
