SAUVETAGE DE LOBBY JOE, BELLE HISTOIRE


Published on May 27, 2016 Our brief but wonderful time with this beautiful being . We saw a lobster in the grocery store surrounded by the animals that had already lost their lives but he was still alive and we had to do something. We bought him for $20 and took him home and set up a tank. Then we tried to figure out how to return him to his home. We researched lobsters and found that he was most likely from Nova Scotia . Then we called various courier companies and found a location that could handle live animals . We looked for a vegan in Halifax that would be willing to help and met our wonderful partner Beth Kent . We drive from Red Lake Ontario 6 hours to Winnipeg , Manitoba. We arrived at the UPS store and they had everything ready for us ahead of time paid and $225 for delivery . He got driven to the airport and arrived the next day in Nova Scotia and was met by Beth Kent and driven 1 hour back to Bridgewater Nova Scotia and set free . Thank you to UPS and Beth Kent and Gail Zwicker for releasing him and for all the support from my friends in Vegans United( Best vegan group in the world ) and to challenge 22 for helping set me on my vegan path. https://www.buzzfeed.com/laurenstrapa...
Deux végétaliennes ont joint leurs efforts pour sauver la vie d'un homard baptisé «Lobby Joe», en lui faisant faire un voyage de 3000 kilomètres avant de le remettre à la mer, pour la modique somme totale de 277 euros
Seul dans son aquarium dans un supermarché de la province canadienne de l'Ontario, Lobby Joe fut d'abord remarqué par Christine Loughead. Le homard ne se doutait qu'il partirait dans un long voyage de plusieurs milliers de kilomètres qui couterait des centaines de dollars!
Sans doute parce que Christine est végétalienne, le sort du crustacé lui paraissait intolérable : «Il n'était pas trop tard pour l'aider. Il était vivant!». En déboursant 20,23 dollars (14 euros) pour l'acquisition de Lobby Joe, elle n'avait encore aucun plan pour lui. Elle le ramena à la maison et lui dit : «Tu n'es plus un repas». Elle le libéra des bandes élastiques bloquant ses pinces, puis le mis dans un aquarium d'eau salée.
