If I said that fishermen had just caught a 23-pound lobster, how many of you would’ve paid top dollar to put that beast in a pot and feed your entire family?

That’s not what vegan Catherine MacDonald had in mind when she purchased “King Louis.”

Louis is possibly 100-years old.

Thanks to MacDonald, he’s not going to be eaten anytime soon.

From CTV News:

ALMA, N.B. — A massive lobster taller than a toddler was caught in the Bay of Fundy — and then bought by a vegan activist so it could be returned, alive, to its chilly home.

Catherine MacDonald, co-owner of the Alma Lobster Shop in southern New Brunswick, said the 23-pound lobster, dubbed “King Louie,” was possibly a century old.

“It’s beautiful,” said MacDonald in a phone interview Tuesday. “For a lobster to be 23 pounds and to be that large, there was nothing else that was going to be a predator — except man.”

The lobster is very healthy, and about four feet long, said MacDonald. It was caught by a fisherman in St. Martins, N.B.

“This is a big, big lobster,” said MacDonald. “My daughter put it next to a three pound lobster, which is large and most people have never seen a three pound lobster, and it was as big as his claw.”

MacDonald said the crustacean was sold for $230 to a Nova Scotia vegan who requested it be released back into the ocean. And so King Louie returned home on Tuesday, she said.

Take this as you will.

MacDonald is a hero to the left and a villain to Republican stomachs everywhere.

Ah, well. We have bigger fish to fry at the moment.
