Lobster Zone Live-Action 'Game' Getting No Playtime From PETA

lobsterzoneYou know those “claw” games you see in bars and such where you try and grab prizes and drop them into a receiving box? Every time I see one I’m reminded of those hilarious plastic aliens from Toy Story that worship “the claw” and every now and again are “chosen” to leave.

Sadly, it seems that one bar in Chicago called Doc Ryan’s is taking the whole claw game to a new level by incorporating live lobsters. Snag one — and the crustacean is sent to its doom in the kitchen. It’s all part of a game called “Lobster Zone” sold by Lobster Zone, Inc.

After receiving complaints from some locals, PETA decided to step in and throw their weight behind getting the bar to drop the “game”. “Studies show that lobsters are social animals who lead complex lives in the wild,” PETA’s senior vice president Dan Mathews said. “We hope Doc Ryan’s will please everyone by serving up drinks and ditching the nasty ‘Lobster Zone’ device.”

Check out a video of some guy playing the game below. Pretty sad, isn’t it?

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
