Crabs and lobsters feel pain

5 posts in this topic

Every year thousands of them are boiled or torn apart while they are still alive, and now there is strong evidence to suggest that crustaceans experience pain.

That was the stark message delivered by Robert Elwood, an animal behaviour researcher at Queen’s University Belfast, to the Behaviour 2013 meeting in Newcastle, UK, today.

Why just test electricity? After all maybe its not pain, maybe its just a case of "What the ****, this feels weird!" I mean come on, its electricity, it screws with everything, even inanimate objects.

Even with there primitive nervous systems and brains I'm pretty sure that crustaceans are not that damn retarded.
