Hundreds of Lobsters "Murdered" at Tucson Event After PETA-Endorsed "Humane" Killing Method Falls Through
[link to blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com]
A new device developed by a British inventor supposedly kills lobsters "humanely" before they're cooked.

But when PETA attempted to bring the device to Arizona last weekend for a lobster bake fundraiser for the Child and Family Resource Center in Tucson, things didn't quite go according to plan and PETA was forced to sit back as hundreds of lobsters hit the boiler the old fashion way -- alive.

PETA paid thousands of dollars to have two "CrustaStun" machines flown in from Great Britain, as well as the inventor of the device, Simon Buckhaven, and his wife.

The "CrustaStun" is basically a taser for lobsters. It sends an electric charge into the crustacean, killing it within five seconds so the critters don't feel any "pain or distress" when they're cooked. Unlike a free pot of boiling water, this thing costs about $3,500.

PETA was so excited about the device that it held a press conference the Friday before the event, where Buckhaven was to demonstrate how the device worked on a plastic lobster.

One problem: The "CrustaStun" never showed up.

"There was an unforeseen customs delay and the CrustaStun didn't make it in time," says PETA spokeswoman Lindsey Wright.

Wright says PETA reached an agreement with the organizers of the fundraiser to have all the lobsters killed with the "CrustaStun" to prevent the animals from having a "slow, agonizing, painful death."

When people started getting hungry, that agreement no longer applied and a lobster holocaust began to take shape.

PETA found itself helpless to the appetites of the people at the fundraiser and was forced to sit back as hundreds of lobsters were boiled alive.

This isn't PETA's first loss in its battle to rescue these delicious animals.

Frequent Valley Fever readers may recall a post we had this past July entitled "Animal-Rights Groups Scream (Crustaceans Are "individuals," Too), as "Lobster Claw" Games Catch On in Valley Bars."

The story reported that animal-rights groups are whining about a new game found in Valley bars, where lobsters are scooped up with a mechanical crane, boiled to perfection, and eaten by the lucky winner.

The story featured the following quote from Lindsey Wright: "Incarcerating lobsters in filthy crowded tanks in noisy bars, before boiling them to death, is as reprehensible as doing it to a dog or cat. It's a cruel game where the lobsters always lose."

Hey Lindsey -- all this money and effort to save lobsters is adorable and everything but keep this in mind next time PETA spends thousands of dollars to spare a lobster a few seconds of "pain": It's just a fucking lobster.

From a movie, I think:

1. Fill pot with white wine

2. Add live lobster

3. Turn on heat and cook drunk lobster

This was done to prepare the meat so as to be tender as the lobster muscle would not go rigid from the sudden burning from being dropped into boiling water.

Apparently, drunk lobster don't tense-up while the heat comes on because they simply don't care; they're drunk. Humane, also?

No.

But when I heared about this I almost fell out of my seat laughing.

Don't get me wrong I do not believe in the killing of baby seals and such.

But with PETAs selfright attitude I could not help but laugh

Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

In one of the ancient Sanskrit texts I read -- though, I can't recall which one right now -- boiling a creature such as a lobster or crab to death brings the very WORST kind of karma.

You DON'T want to do it. Unless you wish to experience immense pain in YOUR future lifetime.

That article made me laugh, which makes me feel bad!
I always make someone else cook the lobsters, and I hate the thought of them possibly in pain, but it's not enough to keep me from eating them.
Lobster dripping in real butter....baked stuffed lobster....lobster newberg...lobster rolls....
Yum!

Only in that the bug chooses to go toward the light vs. minding his own business walking on your walls.

But then where is the sport in a bug zapper.

Hmm...

My favorite way to cook lobster is grilling them.

What is important to note, when using this cooking method, one must remain vigilant as they try to crawl off.

Then when they are dead I like to vertically cut both sides of the tail and smother it with butter and lime.

Good for flavor and also to sear the tail.

Don't they know that lobsters are insects? Their closest living relative is the cockroach - hence the diver's slang name, 'bugs'.

So is PETA against swatting flies and roach motels?
