Can Lobsters Feel Pain? Switzerland Bans The Cooking Of Live Lobsters

There is no proof they can feel pain.

Switzerland has taken the decision to ban the cooking of live lobsters in boiling water, citing an animal rights argument.

The lobsters must now be knocked unconscious before boiling them, so they do not feel pain.
