Gi­ant lob­ster’s happy end­ing

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A GI­ANT lob­ster which is be­lieved to be more than 50 years old has been saved from the pot when a fish­er­man took pity on it af­ter catch­ing it off the UK coast. The crea­ture, which mea­sures about one-me­tre in length and weighs nearly 4kg, was caught by Mar­cus Hyde, who was fish­ing for sole. But be­cause Hyde con­sid­ered the lob­ster too old and too spe­cial to be eaten, he do­nated it to an aquar­ium where it is en­joy­ing a ‘‘ peace­ful re­tire­ment’’.
