Let me go!


The stuff of nightmares for most folks: Being embraced by a 14-pound giant spiny lobster. But Capt. Tristan “Lobsterman” Loescher, the Sanctuary Marine Bermuda’s (www.sanctuary.bm) very own lobster tamer, doesn’t seem to mind a bit. He is pictured in a photo from the sanctuary’s Facebook page, where there’s a also video of catching the critter.

Not to worry, lobster lovers, the large male crustacean was hooked in the leg by accident, and was released almost immediately — after the hook was removed, and he was weighed and photographed — to go about his business. No butter was drawn.
