An 80 year old lobster is headed back to the ocean now that a Manhattan restaurant gave in to please from animal rights activists.
George the 20 pound lobster, estimated at 80 years old, will be driven north to New Hampshire where a crustacean expert will "ease his transition" back to the wild before releasing him in protected waters near Kennebunkport, Maine.
The restaurant manager and executive chef said George was never going to be served, instead he served as a mascot.
A lot of to-do over a lobster.
The latest report says George is back in the ocean.
