Sad News: Larry the Lobster has died on his journey home. (I think they killed ‘im!)

160721_wplg_larry_lobster_16x9_992Larry the Lobster gained fame after it was spared from a boiling pot in Florida, but Maine officials say the crustacean didn’t make it to retirement.  A rescue group had stepped forward to save the lobster after the restaurant owner called a TV station in Florida last week to show off the lobster’s unusual size. It was estimated to be between 60 and 110 years old. It’s not clear what killed the lobster. It was packed in a Styrofoam clamshell with seaweed and frozen gel packs.
