Dangerous Lobster Ranchers

The Sierra Times provides this story about Bob Eddy, an entrepreneur who raised Australian lobsters to sell to people traveling between Las Vegas and Reno. He ran afoul of the law, since he sold this prohibited species live to people who didn't have permits, i.e. people with a boiling pot of water and a bowl of butter waiting.

The Nevada Division of Wildlife boys roared in this Thursday -- 10 armed game wardens, two of the plainclothes guys in black shoes and black sunglasses from the "Nevada Division of Investigation," assigned to take care of any troublesome neighbors, and two state biologists assigned to kill, seize and destroy all of Bob Eddy's crayfish.


For violation of his state lobster ranching permit, duh.
