Lobster Freedom! Iain Stewart is the Greatest Scottish hero since Braveheart!

Iain Stewart’s compassionate rescue of a lobster has animal rights groups and advocates calling him a hero, and we could not agree more. Watch as this lobster goes from the restaurant tank, to the “to-go” bag, and back to the ocean where it belongs.

Iain Stewart has become a viral sensation of sorts after freeing a lobster to the beaches near Glasgow, Scotland. The vegan father noticed one lone lobster in a crate of ice. The animal was barely clinging to life, when Stewart negotiated a price for his release. The family wrapped the crustacean in a towel a traveled to the closest beach.

 Stewart attests, “as soon as I realized it wasn’t dead I didn’t want it on my conscience. The lobster was very subdued when it was in the restaurant. As soon as we unclipped its pincers and let it go into the water, it came to life. The experience had a massive impact on my daughter, who was very pleased she was able to save an animal.”

Please share this fantastic story to raise awareness. All life is precious.
