These Two Builders Took Pity On An Old Lobster And Decided To Save It
"He's an old boy and he deserves better than ending up in the pot."
Builders Derek Mitchell and Paul Tresidder decided to do something pretty unusual when they visited a seafood festival in Penzance, Cornwall, recently.
We spotted a sign for the seafood festival and I saw this big live lobster sitting on ice. I said to Paul 'I want to buy that lobster and save it. He's an old boy and he deserves better than ending up in the pot'!
It came as a bit of a surprise when we found out these two burly builders wanted to save this fantastic-looking lobster.They said they wanted to save Rocky from the pot and it was a bit like him winning the lottery!Initially we put him in to our quarantine tank to make sure he was fit and healthy but he's in such good condition that we've now put him in to our main native marine display where Derek and Paul can come and see him whenever they want.
