Petition To ban the sale of live lobsters

I would like the government to ban the sale of live lobsters, particularly in shops and wholesalers. In the latter especially, scant care is paid to their needs and they suffer terribly. The time between capture and eventual death can be tortuously long, and they can be killed by unskilled members of the public.
