Animal party launches protest against new restaurant

Last updated by

The opening of a new restaurant called Yoepz! has not been well received by certain animal-friendly groups in Utrecht. The Party for the Animals has already launched an online protest against the business expressing concern over the way lobsters and crab are handled and prepared.

According to the party, lobsters can feel pain and can experience fear; many react violently before they are boiled alive. The living conditions of the lobsters in such restaurants differ much from their natural environment where they are often stacked on top of each other in an aquarium with their claws bound together.

The Party for the Animals are investigating the possibility of electrically stunning the crustaceans before they are prepared. The animals party calls on peoples collective efforts to put an end to the improper importing and boiling of lobsters alive.
