Switzerland has made it illegal to throw live lobsters into boiling water to kill them.

The government order further reads - lobsters "will now have to be stunned before they are put to death".

Boiling lobsters alive - a common practice for cooks transforming the popular crustaceans into a meal - will soon be illegal in.

"There's no absolute proof, but you keel running experiments and nearly everything I looked at came out consistent with the idea of pain in these animals", said Robert Elwood, professor emeritus of animal behavior at Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, The New York Times reported. The "Crustastun", a Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-approved device that uses an electrical current to humanely stun crustaceans.

Other provisions of the law also prohibit keeping lobsters in ice water or on ice when they are transported or stored in restaurant kitchens, CNN reported.

MAUI, HAWAII Gillian Dorn was in Hawaii during the false missile crisis, something that she hopes "does not happen again". They have also added a cancellation protocol that can be instituted within seconds, he said.

Lobsters are sentient beings, and in an official report presented to the European Commission, a panel of scientific experts agreed beyond doubt that they can suffer and feel pain - just as dogs, cats, pigs, and humans can.

Still, animal rights activists have long argued that it is cruel to kill lobsters by plunging them into boiling water, as they say that lobsters can feel pain and this is a torturous way to die.

According to the Lobster Institute in ME, lobsters do process pain like insects. For an organism to perceive pain, it must have a complex nervous system.

New Zealand is another country that has stopped the practice of boiling lobsters alive. They will also be clarifying guidelines when it comes to the role of euthanasia for ill or injured animals.
