Rabiot, the giant Pacific octopus from Hokkaido that successfully predicted Japan's wins and losses thrice in the 2018 World Cup, was "gutted, cleaned and sent off to the market" ahead of a match against the Belgians, South China Morning Post reported Tuesday.
Rabiot made his predictions by swimming in a paddling pool and shuffling towards one of three baskets labelled with Japan, their opponent and a draw.
The eight-armed mollusk proceeded to correctly predict Japan would defeat Colombia, draw with Senegal and lose to Poland - thrusting it into national spotlight.
Pictures of what appeared to be the dismembered octopus were shared on social media, although it could not be confirmed that this was definitely Rabiot.
