Sea Cockroach Saved

Ah, the little critters of nature they don't know that they're tasty. Why do people in general not just vegeie folk have a such a tough time with despatching Lobsters?

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian restaurant was fined 688 euros ($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.

In Chicago the city counsel just got rid of foie gras.
