THE UK GOVERNMENT is considering a ban on boiling lobsters alive, Sky News is reporting. 

If the government chooses to pursue the ban, it’s believed a clause would be introduced into the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill. The Bill is currently making its way through the House of Lords.

Currently, the bill only covers vertebrates – animals that have a backbone – and not invertebrates such as lobsters, crabs and squids.

Today we want to know… Should the practice of boiling lobsters alive be banned in Ireland? 


Poll Results:

Yes (10151)
No (4188)
I'm not sure / No opinion (1503)
