60 year old lobster gets stay of execution



    Dallas Lobster Tale
    Barney is a 60-year old lobster that will be donated instead of dinner.

    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.
