BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It is tough being a lobster, even in Boca Raton. You're swimming around happily one minute, the next you find yourself in a tank with your friends and little kids pointing at you with a never ending request for a “clean up in Aisle 4.” All the while, you know that the grab of death is soon approaching, as you are bagged, tagged, and put into a pot of boiling water.
Then, someone reaches in and takes you. You assume that this is it — the end — when you suddenly see daylight, and cars, and hear traffic. It's not the ocean, but you assume it can't be far away.
Yes, the life of a lobster. At least the life of one lobster at the Publix on North Federal Highway, where a Publix manager called police after someone attempted to steal him — and some of his friends.
According to police, a man stole nearly $73 worth of lobster and fled the Publix, only to be chased by the store's manager. The lobster chase continued down the street, when the suspect turned around and gave the manager his live lobsters, then continued to run.
Police looked for the lobster thief but found no one matching his description.
The lobsters — believing they were enroute to the ocean, and freedom — would only sarcastically say, “tanks for the memory” when asked about their ordeal.
