Another country has banned boiling live lobsters. Some scientists wonder why.

One of the comments at yahoo reads, "We boil crawfish pretty regularly. I will now begin taking the time to hit each of them over the head before cooking them. It will be time consuming, but I will sleep better at night."

What's next? Crawfish? Crabs? Erstas?

What are your thoughts?

I think these crustaceans are arthropods, as are insects. Will we be required to develop a method for humane killing of cockroaches?

I don't think it has a thing to do with 'political correctness' that's a different subject than this forum.

Do lobster's feel pain and how fast do they die when put into the pot?

That's actually a very reasonable subject for us to debate.

the only time I have ever cooked lobster, both of the girls went into the boiling pot, very quickly. The chef who taught me watched closely and she was insistent that it happen quickly. I can give anyone more details and some videos.

what is the timeframe for them to die when they are cooked?

what are the options other than dropping a cold, dulled, lobster into boiling water?

sorry for being so blunt, but if you are going to cook fresh lobster, these are valid questions.

Wait...
Last I checked we were listed at the top of the food chain.
... Unless you elect to live in the wild.
Then all bets are off when the Bear gets hungry :D

Mother Nature has set things up pretty good as for as I see it..
.
I mean... The spider gives the fly "no way ou"t when he is hungry.
Is it inhumane to chop off the chicken's head?
What about the commercial fisherman...
should he supply oxygen before he cuts out the guts and scrapes off the scales?
REALLY... and Let's not talk about the Slaughter House!!!

I remember my Mom cleaning soft shell crabs...
Goodbye eyes... There goes the lungs
All while the creature was alive.

Frog legs jumping in the pan... I saw that too.

I guess the Lobster was dealt a bad hand...
As my neighbor says...
Lobster... the perfect excuse to eat tons of butter.

It's not nice to Fool with Mother Nature,
aboy
