PETA Germany filmed in August 2012, the lobster farming in various METRO stores and was able to document the following:
The lobsters are tied. Their claws are bound together with rubber bands.
The lobsters are stacked, there are lobster loner.
The lobster sitting in completely bald pelvis. Lobster in the sea usually live in caves or on rocky ground.
After they were caught in Canada, they get nothing to eat. How many days or even weeks ago was that? Hummer also are hungry!
They are bright neon lights suspended at least 12 hours a day. In the sea they live virtually in permanent darkness.

What does the law say?
The law states that all animals must be maintained in accordance to their needs. In plain language, you need food and not be bound!
This also applies to invertebrates. It is a clear violation of law. METRO Group in Austria has been sentenced to pay a fine for that reason and therefore sought an attitude and sale of live lobsters! Our goal: METRO Germany to set the attitude and the sale of live and dead lobsters.


What you can do:
Participate in our online petition at the end of this page.
Complain to METRO , with a letter or an e-mail.

Please speak out at every opportunity against the cooking of lobsters. Click here to see our video , like a lobster is thrown alive into boiling water and after agonizing 2.5 minutes still lives.
Thanks for your commitment to lobster! Because only with your help we can help the lobsters!

No more live lobster at METRO!
METRO Cash & Carry Ltd sold nationwide in all of its 56 branches still live lobsters, which are stacked in bare tanks, tied up and then vegetate without food. KaDeWe in Berlin has already set the attitude of live lobsters, as well as METRO Austria! Authorities and veterinary offices are currently working on new accounting rules and the federal government is considering the ban on cooking crustaceans! Appeal to the CEO, Dominique Minnaert, and ask him to give up the attitude and the sale of live lobsters. According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) can lobsters feel pain and deserve protection. in Austria was exactly the same attitude lobsters banned from METRO way!

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

I've always been disgusted at seeing live lobster in big tanks at grocery stores, where they have nothing to do and have their claws taped so they don't fight, but especially of course so people can pick them out like death row prisoners and have them live cooked. Should not be. I also never eat at Red Lobster.
