This vegan activist spent more than $200 to rescue the lobster

King Louie is reportedly the size of a toddler.

A 23-pound, almost 4-foot-long lobster named King Louie was caught in the Bay of Fundy in Canada and given a second chance at life when a vegan from Nova Scotia purchased him to release back into the ocean.

The lobster was for sale at the Alma Lobster Shop in southern New Brunswick, Canada, co-owned by Catherine MacDonald, who said the crustacean was possibly a century old.

“It’s beautiful,” MacDonald told The Globe and Mail in a phone interview Tuesday. “For a lobster to be 23 pounds and to be that large, there was nothing else that was going to be a predator – except man.”

The vegan woman who bought King Louie, Katie Conklin, purchased the lobster for $230. He was then returned to the ocean in a fishing vessel similar to the one he was initially picked up on.

“It went full circle,” MacDonald said. “It was released on a vessel out in the Bay of Fundy in front of the village.”

Another possibly century-old lobster dubbed “Larry” also made headlines this summer when he was purchased in Sunrise, Florida to live in the Maine State Aquarium, but died in transit, The State reported.


Vegan Rescues 100-Year-Old Giant Lobster

Vegan Nova Scotia resident Katie Conklin rescued “King Louie”—a 23-pound lobster believed to be 100-years-old—from New Brunswick store Alma Lobster Shop. Shop co-owner Catherine MacDonald says the rare lobster became an attraction after people expressed interest in mounting the animal and using him as a promotional prop for their businesses. Luckily, Conklin acted fast and paid $230 for King Louie and released him back into Bay of Fundy, where he was caught several days prior by local fishermen. Given King Louie’s size, MacDonald commented, “There was nothing else that was going to be a predator—except man.” King Louie is the most recently rescued lobster in Canada. This summer, vegan Christine Longhead rescued lobster Lobby Joe from a tank in Ontario and spent more than $300 to transport him to the ocean in Halifax. One month later, Canadian monks released 600 pounds of lobsters off the coast of the Wood Islands after purchasing them from local vendors on Prince Edward Island.
