Inventor Simon Buckhaven labored for two years with Department of Food Animal Science in England to come up with a better way to prepare lobster meat and so far, claims are that this invention is not only more humane, but also makes them tastier, so says Treehugger.com.
Supposedly, zapping a lobster is more humane than boiling them as they scream. So says company CrustaStun, purveyor of the lobster electrifier.
The company advertises the machine as: “The Crustastun – World’s first Humane Electronic Crustacean Stunner.” According to the BBC, the invention complies with slaughter regulations for animals such as cows and sheep, and that it’s only a fraction of a second of electrocution before they’re knocked unconscious.
