Swiss Ban Cruel Boiling Of Live Lobsters

We enjoy lobsters, whether dining around a campfire or in our home kitchen. At a fancy restaurant, we never ask the waiter to kill our dinner humanely. Not that boiling live critters is humane, but I doubt if Swiss butchers prepare their other foods, including cattle, clams and chicken, with kindness on execution day.

The Swiss law also suggests a contradiction in terms: humane death by “rendering them unconscious”, and then it’s OK to dump your lobsters into scalding water. The new law also gives domestic pets protections, including not preventing dogs from barking. Oh sure, tell that to the neighbors when your hound dog bays at the moon at midnight.
