George the Lobster FREE!

Liberated Lobster–A lobster named George caught off Newfoundland, Canada has been estimated to be about 140 years old using  a rule of thumb based on the crustacean’s weight.– Well, George weighed 20 pounds, and steamed Maine lobster goes for $27 a pound, so the supercentenarian was bound for a dinner plate at a Park Avenue seafood restaurant.

Fortunately, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) intervened, and asked City Crab and Seafood to release George.  To their credit a compassionate decision was made, and George the lobster will be released today near Kennebuckport, Maine to live out his days in freedom and peace in an area where lobster trapping is forbidden! –Bravo!

    I often fantasized about having a pet lobster, named Capt. Hook, when I was a kid. We would have had so much in common. I don’t like seafood…and he wouldn’t like being it!
