The Lobster Zone is a cruel "game" found in some bars and restaurants. The arcade-style contraption allows patrons with a couple of bucks to waste to grab at and finally pluck a lobster out of a machine using a joystick-controlled crane with an attached claw.

Once caught, the lobster is dropped down a chute, boiled or cut up while still alive, and then eaten.

PETA has received several calls recently from patrons of Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, who were horrified at seeing a Lobster Zone machine at the resort. Our callers reported that lobsters were languishing in a filthy tank and trying to flee as they were repeatedly chased by the metal claw.

Please contact Todd Nelson, president of Kalahari Resorts, to remind him that living beings must not be treated like cheap boardwalk-game trinkets, and implore him to remove this cruel contraption from Kalahari Resorts for good.
