I thought this was just an urban legend !
Not only are they being eaten but, boiled alive!
Can you imagine if this happened to your little pet?
Is Greenpeace or PETA or somebody fighting this?

Another method is to split the lobster or sever the body in half lengthwise. Lobsters may also be killed or rendered insensate immediately before boiling by a stab into the brain
a lobster's brain operates from not one but several ganglia and disabling only the frontal ganglion does not usually result in death or unconsciousness.
A device called the CrustaStun has been invented to electrocute shellfish such as lobsters, crabs, and crayfish before cooking. The device works by applying a 110 volt, 2–5 amp electrical charge to the animal. It is reported the CrustaStun renders the shellfish unconscious in 0.3 seconds and kills the animal in 5 to 10 seconds, compared to 3 minutes to kill a lobster by boiling.
They do have domesticated pets actually. It's pretty chic to have enough money for that. It's in style to be able to afford to have pets and feed and clothe them.
