Stop the Boiling! 300 Lobsters Go Free

Anonymous Animal’s Rights Group Pays to Liberate 300 Maine Lobsters Heading for Your Plate

PORTLAND, MAINE (RUSHPRNEWS)April 12, 2007 – Three hundred lobsters have a new lease on life thanks to an anonymous group that paid to secure their release from a dealer in Maine.

The episode unfolded in the midst of a lobster shortage and record prices when a group of 10 young people arrived at New Meadows Lobster Pound talking about the need for “God’s creatures” to be free, owner Pete McAleney told the Portland Press Herald.

Freedom, however, came at a cost. The group paid nearly US$3,400 in cash to buy all of his one-claw lobsters — known as “culls” — at a cost of $11.25 each, McAleney said. Culls are cheaper than lobsters with two claws.
