PETA Investigation: Live Lobster & Crab Brutality

Peta and recently revealed their undercover investigation of Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster facility in Rockland, Maine.

According to Peta:

At L.L. Bean heir Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster in Rockland, Maine, workers are ripping live animals apart limb from limb. Some are dumped, still alive, into boiling water, while others are left in bins to die in agony.

Workers tear off live lobsters’ claws and then use metal pipes to pry their heads from their bodies. Tails and claws are saved while the remaining parts of the lobsters’ bodies are trashed, still alive and able to feel pain.

Crabs are suffering, too, as they are slammed against sharp metal spikes to break off their top shells, and then their exposed internal organs are violently scrubbed off with spinning brushes. Still alive, they are then slowly lowered into a vat of boiling water.

You can watch their undercover investigation right here (WARNING: The video is graphic in nature, but worth watching for sure):
