Blue Lobster

Written by PETA | March 22, 2011

A lobster in the U.K. didn’t get the death penalty, but he did get 30 years to life. A 3-foot-long lobster was caught by an angler fishing for sole off the British coast in West Sussex. The lobster is believed to be around 50 years old and is one is of the biggest and oldest lobsters ever caught in Britain. 

He was “rescued” from the garlic butter and sent to live the rest of his potentially 80-year lifespan in captivity at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth, England. Somehow, I don’t think that he’s happy about the move.

Did we learn nothing at all from Sebastian of Little Mermaid fame? “Darling, it’s better down where it’s wetter, under the sea.”

    The lobster managed to live to 50 without dying. I don’t think it really needs human help.

    By Fukawa’s Logic all animals should be kept in zoos and enclosures because if we let them run free someone else might kill them. Yea an aquarium is so much better than open seas.

    Throw the man back!

    Fukawa, you may be hit by a car or have an accident one day. Should you be locked up to ensure you’re safe?

  • kathy says:

    That’s so sad. Some worker at the aquarium, or someone else, just needs to set him free. It’s the right thing to do.

  • Fukawa says:

    They probably put him in the aquarium for his own safety lol. What if someone ELSE caught him after being cought this time, and decided to eat him? Now there’s no chance he’ll get caught again for someone’s dinner plate. :)
