Portland Sea Dogs Drop Linda Bean’s Lobsters After PETA Animal Cruelty Claims
Remember that PETA video filmed in Maine?
The Portland Sea Dogs will not be offering lobster from Linda Bean's Maine Lobsters this season. PETA released a video showing lobsters and crabs being 'mutilated in inhumane ways.' The animal righs organization claims they're more modern and less painful systems for killing lobsters and crabs.
In a press release PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said: 'Since consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about animal-welfare issues, the Sea Dogs' menu change is a smart, ethical business decision. PETA is calling on all businesses across the U.S. to stop working with any company that rips live lobsters apart, as documented at Linda Bean's Maine Lobster processing plant.'
Hadlock Field joins other sporting arenas including Boston's TD Garden in dropping Linda Bean's Maine Lobsters products from the menu.
