    30,000 Pounds Of Lobsters Survive Truck Crash, Are Destined For Death Anyway

    [​IMG]

    PORTLAND, Maine, March 18 (Reuters) - Some 30,000 pounds (1.4 tons) of live lobsters from Canada survived for several hours after a truck carrying them slid off a highway in central Maine on Wednesday, but the crustaceans were quickly back on their way to New Hampshire and Rhode Island markets, police said.

    The truck, fully loaded with about $300,000 worth of lobsters from Nova Scotia in seawater, slid into the median and landed on its side after swerving to miss a vehicle that had spun out on a stretch of Interstate 95 north of Augusta, Maine's capital, according to state police reports.

    State police said a crane was used to get the truck upright but it was damaged beyond repair. After a crew ensured the wellbeing of the lobsters, they were loaded on other trucks taking them to their intended destination.

    The driver was not hurt, police said. (Reporting by Dave Sherwood; Editing by Scott Malone and Will Dunham)

    Now there are some animals that Beth could have actually helped.
    I'm sure they would have loved living in either The Hamptons or Florida.
    The rubber bands on their claws would have made sure that the kitties didn't get pinched during selfies.
