A better death row for lobsters?:
Whole Foods is reviewing its 'animal-compassionate standards'
for storing lobsters. OK, maybe we should give them a good last meal and a cigarette. But they're still going to end up boiled or steamed to death at the hands of consumers. ... Maybe that's the real problem: Lobsters are about the only species in which consumers still actually buy them live and then kill them. No one buys live organic-fed chickens clucking around the backrooms of Whole Foods. So no one asks about the chickens' final death-row hours and non-blindfolded execution. Is Whole Foods going to look into that? Hub Blog demands an investigation!
