Tell St. Thomas Episcopal Church to cancel its cruel lobster boil immediately!
On November 8, St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Huntsville, Alabama, plans to hold its annual Lobsterfest event, at which approximately 2,500 lobsters will be boiled alive —an act that researcher Gordon Gunter described in the journal Science as “unnecessary torture.” When dropped into scalding water, lobsters whip their bodies wildly and scrape the sides of the pot in a desperate attempt to escape. PETA has received complaints from Huntsville residents who were horrified to learn that lobsters will be tortured as part of an annual church fundraiser.
Please contact Lobsterfest organizers and urge them to replace the lobster boil with an animal-friendly fundraiser that truly reflects Christian values of mercy and compassion.
Thank you for speaking up for animals.
