An Australian diver frees an octopus wrapped in a plastic bag.

In the video, captured on January 6 in the Gold Coast Seaway, the diver tries to remove the bag from inside the octopus' garden, which according to the filmer the animal did not want to let go off.

The filmer writes: "After a little bit of tug of war with him and trading it for a rock, the octopus finally lets go of the plastic bag."

The diver regularly takes part in dives with the Cleanup Crew-Environmental Divers group, which aims to remove as much marine debris as possible.
