George goes free!

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Not *that* George (who we hope will be facing charges soon enough) but George the 140 year old lobster. I'm not a vegetarian (it might even be illegal in France...not quite sure) and while others in France eat anything that runs, swims, flies, slithers or moves in any which way, but not something like this. No one would really want to eat such an old lobster anyway so who needs to tank circus? Long live George!

A 140-year-old lobster once destined for a dinner plate received the gift of life Friday from a Park Avenue seafood restaurant.

George, the 20-pound supercentenarian crustacean, was freed by City Crab and Seafood in New York City.

"We applaud the folks at City Crab and Seafood for their compassionate decision to allow this noble old-timer to live out his days in freedom and peace," said Ingrid E. Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
