Lutz will soon star as Hercules, and he’s getting into character with a Herculean effort to save lobsters and
crabs. After he saw PETA’s
undercover video footage showing workers at Linda
Bean’s Maine Lobster slaughterhouse ripping apart fully conscious lobsters and crabs and dumping them, still alive, into either boiling water or the trash to die
slowly, he sent an urgent letter to the L.L.Bean heiress asking her to stop the
most egregious acts of cruelty.

In his letter, Kellan pointed out that other readily available slaughter methods, such as
electrical stunning or hydrostatic pressure, would quickly
kill the animals before
they are dismembered.
Watching these animals writhe as their exposed internal organs were
violently scrubbed off with spinning brushes made me wonder how you could
possibly wait one second longer to spend a little of your profits on a machine
that renders these animals unconscious prior to being processed,” Kellan wrote.
“Even if you can’t relate to lobsters and crabs in the same way that you
might to dogs or dolphins, they also deserve to be spared unnecessary agony.
You Can Help!
help us flood Linda Bean with e-mails requesting that she switch
to a far-less cruel means of slaughtering these animals. Let her
know that if she is going to continue to rake in huge profits from the deaths
of lobsters and crabs, it seems like the least that she can do.
