As reported by
local activists in Italy
2005 Aug 25
One lobster was liberated from the restaurant "Corto Maltese"
in Viareggio. As the media reports, two people entered in the restaurant
and when they saw the living animal in the pool suddenly they took him
and run out. Unfortunately they where later identified and probably will
be prosecuted for theft. At least the lobster was previously thrown back
in the sea.
