March 1st it will become illegal to boil your lobster...in Switzerland that is!
The first national legislation of its kind in the world calls for a more humane death for lobsters among other animal rights.
What you must do is render them unconscious before putting them into scalding water.
Two methods are recommended;
Second- sedation of the lobster by dipping it into salt water and then thrusting a knife into its brain.
Doing the above sounds just as bad as being boiled to me.
However you cook it, the consumption of Lobster isn't down by any country anywhere.
