The Lobster Zone Claw Game

by | 1st, July 2008

HOW do you choose dinner? For two dollars, ‘The Lobster Zone’ allows players to operate a mechanical claw in the hope of pulling up one form the glass case for dinner.

Winners have their lobster cooks and prepared a la mode.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) say the machine “turns torture and death into a game, pure and simple.

“Incarcerating lobsters in filthy tanks inside a boisterous club, making an abusive game out of their capture, and finally boiling them to death is every bit as reprehensible as tormenting cats, dogs, or any other animal,” says PETA vice president Tracy Reiman.

Ernie Pappas, whose company make the machines, tells the Denver Post: “Lobsters’ favourite food is lobster.”

“You have it with some fries and some slaw, and you are done,” says Dennis McCann, owner of J.D.’s Bait Shop, a sports bar and grill on Arapahoe Road just east of Interstate 25.

But only if you win…
