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.
