Yeah, weve become so desenitized to to the image of of what real food is, when people see KFC (fried chicken) they don't see chopped up fried animal body parts
one thing that hurts me is when you see people in resturants choosing live lobster and watching it boil to death in a pot in front of their very eye's
The boiling of lobsters is so inhumane! What's worse is the gleeful look on the people's faces & they await their cruel dinner. It amazes me that anyone would think these great creatures don't feel pain.
Here's a great lobster site that I keep bookmarked for those times when you encounter ingorance about lobsters. Lot's of great info here!
I read recently (Worldwatch?) that because the demand for lobsters is so great they are being harvested earlier & earlier in thier lifespans & there are some areas where there is great concern that the lobsters are not reaching full maturity & able to reproduce quickly enough to survive.
"When the last whale is gone, the whales will suffer no more."
Sadly it will be the same for these wonderful creatures.
