The Lobster Zone is a cruel “game” that’s found in some bars and restaurants. The arcade-style contraption allows patrons to pluck a lobster out of a machine using a joystick-controlled crane with an attached claw. Once caught, the lobster is dropped down a chute, boiled or cut up while still alive, and then eaten. But like all animals, lobsters can feel pain, and they suffer when they are injured, cut, or boiled alive.
PETA has recently received several calls from patrons of Knuckleheads Roadhouse who were horrified upon seeing a Lobster Zone machine in the restaurant. Our callers reported seeing lobsters languishing in a tank and trying to flee as they were repeatedly chased by the metal claw.
Please contact Knuckleheads Roadhouse to remind its management that living beings must not be treated as if they were cheap boardwalk-game trinkets and to implore the establishment to remove this cruel contraption from the premises.
You can use the following methods of contacting Knuckleheads Roadhouse:
