- Apr 5, 2007Alert sent by a concerned viewer: "I was catching the news today
from 11am-Noon - Channel 3 (AZ Family) has a cooking segment at the
end of the broadcast each day. Today - I witnessed something I
couldn't believe - I'm sick to my stomach. They were cooking "live"
lobsters on a very hot grill and the lobsters were struggling,
twisting and turning trying to get away. They died before my eyes.
I have never seen anything like it - I'm calling the restaurant and
Channel 3 expressing my outrage - you might want to do the same."
From another viewer: "it shows a lobster that the chef said was
split in half off camera. The lobster is moving a little and the
reporter jokingly remarks that it `sure is fresh'. The chef places
the cut in half lobster on the grill, and it starts moving around
like it's trying to get off the grill, moving its legs, tail, and
tentacles. Eventually it stops. Although it would seem that cutting
the lobster in half would kill it immediately and so what we saw were
nerve reactions, it seemed to be moving around more than mildly
