Alma Lobster Shop in New Brunswick posted photos of the 23-pound lobster being sold online, prompting local media attention. Katie Conklin, a vegan from Nova Scotia, decided to spend 230 Canadian dollars (about $170 USD) and ask for Louie to be set free, CTV reports.
Fisherman Rodney MacDonald obliged on Tuesday, shouting “Thank you Katie!” as he plopped the lobster back into the water.
“It went full circle,” Catherine MacDonald, an owner of the Alma Lobster Shop, told Toronto’s Metro News. MacDonald said Louie could be 100 years old based on his size.
