Do you have to be over 100 years old for PETA to care about you? That lobster could have fed a small country lol....

Kinda reminds me of SNL back in the day: Save Larry the Lobster or Kill Larry the Lobster.

umm, if i remember right, there's lobster traps all over the bays around the bush compound in kennebunk. in fact, when we went on a "lobstering" tour boat, ol' h.w. came out of a slip near his house in a speedboat and passed us.

mav's right. it'll probably be his dinner soon.

Wow... Trapped, tanked, rescued, released...

All so that the lobster can go through the whole 'getting caught' scenario again.

Sounds about like PETA doing a publicity grab. And what exactly is unethical about killing and eating said lobster? Did he just not fit in this: DVICE: CrustaStun tases lobsters dead ?
