Dallas Lobster Tale

60 year old lobster gets stay of execution

A Dallas restaurant is going overboard to save a lobster from the boiling pot and clarified butter.

Judd Fruia, who co-owns Tre Amici, said when his customer saw Barney, a 60 year old lobster, he just could not make him a meal.

Instead the customer asked if he could donate Barney to the Dallas World Aquarium, and it turns out they wanted the huge lobster.

Barney's travels are not finished.

The aquarium's is undergoing renovations, so Barney is back in Maine for holding, then he'll return to Dallas.
