Lobsters Break Out of Supermarket in Germany

In a daring escape involving a helicopter...ok they didn't use a helicopter. But, a bunch of lobsters did manage to escape an Asian supermarket in Germany, and were seen crawling down the street.

"The breakout was successful," Katrin Brandeis, spokeswoman for the Stuttgart police, told SPIEGEL ONLINE. "Passers by alerted the police at 1:45 a.m. reporting a large number of the animals heading down the street."

The escape may have saved their lives. "These animals weren't ever going to be pets," Brandeis said. "Now they've been taken to an animal home. The supermarket hasn't got in touch with us."
