Crabs can feel pain

tritonman (998572) writes "A new scientific study suggests that crabs can feel and remember pain. From the article: "More research is needed in this area where a potentially very large problem is being ignored," said Elwood. "Legislation to protect crustaceans has been proposed but it is likely to cover only scientific research. Millions of crustacean are caught or reared in aquaculture for the food industry. "There is no protection for these animals (with the possible exception of certain states in Australia) as the presumption is that they cannot experience pain.
Perhaps soon there will be a study to determine that vegetables feel pain as well, then all of the vegans will only be allowed to eat rocks."
