Swiss say you can't put live lobsters in boiling water any more

I ain't trying to be "zenophobic' or anything, but have the hot cocoa folks lost their minds?

You have to find some way to either 'mechanically or electrically' stun them first....like bashing their brains out I suppose.
You also can't transport them on ice or in 'ice water'.

I'm not even sure they have a brain....

If this comes to America, I wonder what it bodes for a 40lb sack of hundreds of live Louisiana crawfish?

I do not trust the Swiss. They eat horse meat and hid Nazi money during World War II.

Boiling lobsters alive: Not allowed
Accepting thousands of Jewish people's gold teeth from Nazis: Wonderful

Swiss need to stick to making knives, watches, and hot girls.

It has a stringier texture then beef more like moose meat. Mule meat was referred to missouri moose when I was younger and horses fell into the same category

I'm not sure Switzerland has weaponry that will kill a lobster with a single shot.

But don't forget, a Swiss army knife has that one special blade.

Gonna be a pain if they adopt that here. Can you imagine killing each crawfish before you boil them .. that's a 3 day job.

The Swiss would do themselves good to read Peter Tompkins book The Secret Life of Plants where he proves that plants have sentience and can communicate with one another. After reading this book one would have to be pretty deranged to choose to be a vegetarian or vegan because this cruel life's choice demands the death of so many to sustain the one.

This leads to the obvious question as to whether it is more humane to kill one animal to provide days if not months of subsistence or to kill thousands for just one bland meal. Personally, I would rather see one cow suffer to fill my plate for months than thousands of poor oat babies being viciously aborted to fill a bowl with oatmeal that tastes like crap. The reason it tastes like crap is due to the stress they endure during the butchering process resulting in dark cutter oats. Dark cutting oats like beef is pretty poor eating.

As for the lobster, its the same only on a lower scale being it is related to the spider and all spiders should be killed with extreme prejudice.

In summary, we should all eat beef as it is the most responsible humane food choice.

Had a neighbour Rooibaard(Redbeard) who was loading cattle to take to an auction on a day. One broke its leg and couldn't be loaded so he said he would have to leave it over until the following week. Somebody suggested that he shoot the animal and put it out of its misery. His reply "Dis mos n dier, hulle voel nie pyn nie" (It's an animal, it does not feel pain).

That is what we do with shrimp. Quick bath in 35 degree water first, just to numb their senses so they won't feel the freezer burn. All for the least pain possible. Now if someone would come up with a less brutal way to harvest cabbage. I mean really, cutting their head off?? Brutal society we live in.

I'm sure they feel pain.thats part of the killing and eating process .. Maybe they can figure out a way for them to die of natural causes...
