Lobsters have rights

Postby h2ofwlr » Sun Apr 30, 2006 6:10 pm

ROME (April 28) - An Italian restaurant was fined 688 euros, or $855, for displaying live lobsters on ice to attract patrons, in an innovative application of an anti-cruelty law usually affecting to household pets.

A court in the northeastern city of Vicenza ruled the display was a form of abuse dooming the crustaceans to a slow death by suffocation.

"We're appealing," said Giuseppe Scalesia, who runs La Conchiglia D'Oro, or "Golden Shell," restaurant along with his brother Camillo.

"They said that the lobsters, laying on the ice, suffer... They compared them in court to other animals, like cats and dogs."

The case was brought by Gianpaolo Cecchetto, a former environmental activist, who took his two young children to the Vicenza restaurant in May 2002.

"They were shocked by the display," Cecchetto told Reuters, adding he immediately got in touch with the ENPA national animal protection entity. "ENPA took care of the lawyers and legal proceedings."

Italy has some of the world's toughest animal rights laws. The city of Rome in October banned goldfish bowls, seen as cruel, while Turin passed a law last year that would fine dog owners 500 euros unless they walked their canine friends at least three times a day.





I beleive Lobsters should be right too, on the right side of my plate, with the Potatoes on the left and the beans in the middle :yes:

Chucking lobsters shortly in the frezzer (or on ice) is the cleanest way to kill'em. They dont take long at all. Chucking them in fresh water is silly because they go spastic and throwing them straight into boiling waters just crazy also unless you like boiling water flying everywhere. Damn PETA, next bacteria will have rights also.

A lobster is one step up from a bug. Tasty bugs from the sea that is.
Man everywhere I go, and who I talk to today...has been all about food.
Puddlejumper and his homemade cornbread to MM77 and I talking about wild game...stop it. Now I want lobster and crablegs with wild bore bacon.

Heck during Colonial times lobster was considered poor mans food.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

It is around some parts here too. Chuck'em to the dogs as far as I'm concerned. They're far to rich in taste for me.

Fishing for lobster was once considered work for those who couldn't get a real job.That too was in colonial times.Maine lobster was used for bait,fertilizer,hog feed and not much else.No one ate lobster(or at least admit it)until rather recently.
Now lobstering is major bucks.
Funny how things turn around.

I don't know what all the fuss is about, i have never tried lobster. I would like to but i am alergic to shell fish. I took a bite of a crab once, its a good thing i didn't like it, my face got red a puffy and my throte started swelling up. the doc said if i would have eaten more i would have been in some trouble.

LOBSTERS HAVE RIGHTS

Postby scott m ward » Thu May 04, 2006 8:41 am

Lobsters have rights!!! At least if you place them on the left side of the plate :toofunny: their rights generally consist of melted butter or a garlic/wine sauce and a loaded baked potato :thumbsup:
