A Connecticut man purchased a 17-pound lobster at a Waterford restaurant, then
released the crustacean back into Long Island Sound. The Lobster would have to
be about 80-years-old to reach his current size and he felt it deserved to live.
It takes seven years for him to even become a lobster big enough to keep,"
MacKenzie said. "For a lobster to live this long and avoid lobster traps,
nets, lobster pots ... he doesn't deserve a bib and butter." He took the
lobster back to sea Tuesday, releasing it in a secret location, where he said it
would be almost impossible for fishermen to drag their nets. MacKenzie received
a send-off from a group of children chanting "Let Larry Live" and the
lobster was given a salute from the Niantic River Bridge operator who sounded
the lift bridge's siren as the boat carrying it headed to sea.

Unfortunately Larry the lobster died soon after being released because the man
was too afraid to remove the bands from his massive claws. This left Larry
unable to defend himself and he was quickly killed.
