I was looking up videos on euthanizing sick fish and came across some videos on animal cruelty I wish I had never seen. I am not vegetarian but those videos made me wish i was

Honestly, I don't know how true this is. I don't tend to trust things like this that don't give any specifics, just the story of a friend of a friend. Also, I have heard that putting a coldwater critter (like a lobster) into boiling water should kill it instantly. But, I don't really know for sure. I hope its not true of course.
I choose to not eat sea food because of multiple reasons. I am not a vegetarian though.

I don't like seafood honestly. Also I'm not a vegetarian because I like meat lol and I believe that God gave us meat to eat but I believe there are ways of doing things.

I would think there would be some kind of law that would shut those sort of establishments down... Or make them start handling things better But idk...

Maybe the lobster was in the water as it was heating up? Just a guess

That's how crawdads are cooked too. I don't see an issue with it. I also think this was a dramatized video that any animal rights activist or extremist vegetarian could have created in an attempt at making cooking lobster a bad thing.
