Dear Animal Advocates,
Please follow the link below to
view this article in last weeks Artvoice. The murder of crustastun's for food is
a topic rarely discussed within the animal rights community. Why is this so? Yet
these poor creatures suffer the most gruesome death imaginable.
fall I accidentally scalded myself while cooking. The pain was excruciating.
That was only the mishap of spilling scalding hot water on my hand for just a
second. Can you imagine having your entire body submerged in a tank of scalding
water as lobster's do, with no escape. People who don't know any better or much
less care, argue they die instantly. I am unsure myself as to how long it takes.
I don't believe the article mentions a time frame. If its only 5 seconds ,
that's 5 seconds too long. I'm sure it takes a little longer than that. The
point being if indeed it only took 5 seconds, the pain is unbearable. As
mentioned previously I experienced a seconds worth of what it felt like.
The author makes a stupid remark about a moment of silence before dropping them
to their death. If he indeed felt any guilt as to what he was doing he would
search for a different line of work or employment in many restaurants that
choose not to serve lobster. Better yet search for work in a vegan
establishment. According to the Buffalo Vegetarian Society, there is a totally
vegan restaurant in Darien New York. ( Of which I've yet to check out.)
Every individual has a choice but, the author chooses to continue torturing
lobsters to death. ''It's my job'', he states. Well as mentioned, there are
other establishments that don't serve lobster. As far as lobsters screaming, I
can't comment on that. I have never witnessed one being cooked. Thank God for
that however, that simply shows this individuals mentality. Just because they
make no sound during their demise doesn't necessarily mean they feel no pain.
Reptiles, fish, etc. don't.
Please read the article and offer your
comments. I would like nothing better than to see this cruel and inhumane
practice stopped. GO VEGAN!
All the Best,
