A lobster with an underarm tattoo is not a good sign
It’s not a new phenomenon, but it seems a tad out of place on the side of a well-known restaurant chain.
And so it was that a couple of weeks ago, after a few drinks at a nearby bar, an innocent lobster was accidentally splattered with the blood of an unknown animal.
A man approached the lobster in a restaurant and told it to “take off its underarm”.
The lobster was stunned with a stun gun, but the blood seeped through the lobster’s skin and was still in the underarm.
The owner of the restaurant then contacted the local police, who were able to capture the man who had allegedly done this.
But the man’s lawyer said that the incident was “unnecessary” and that the lobster “was a genuine, normal, everyday lobster”.
He said that he was “deeply concerned” about the case, and that his client “has been beaten by people”.
The owner said he was still working on the matter.
“We will look at this again if we get a call from the police,” he said.
A restaurant owner in China has been slapped with a court summons for violating animal cruelty laws after he was caught with a lobster in his underarm, which has now been removed.
A police officer saw the incident on CCTV and approached the restaurant to report the incident, but was instead told by the owner that the restaurant was “not allowed to sell lobster in the area” due to the incident.
The man was fined 500 yuan ($890), and is now under investigation for animal cruelty.
