Makro: A worker tells our investigator to put live lobsters into boiling water to cook them
Makro are selling lobsters to be taken
home and often boiled alive
Viva! and Animal Aid have joined forces to try and persuade Makro to end the sale of live animals at the their stores across the UK.
Currently live lobsters and crabs are being sold to whoever wants them; with Makro having no control over how they are killed. Once home most are boiled or hacked apart with knives whilst still alive. It can be a prolonged and excruciating death.
All animals killed for meat will suffer, but selling live animals promotes even greater suffering.
Please contact Makro and politely ask them to stop.
Please also remember there is no such thing as humane slaughter. The best way to end the suffering of animals is to not eat them.
