Loughead did some research online and found that the lobster she rescued was likely caught off the coast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Seeing as how it would take more than 24 hours for her to drive there, she decided to ship the lobster instead - figuring he'd survived the journey inland that brought him to her town.
"We found a UPS Store in Winnipeg, six hours away, that would ship a live animal," said Loughead. "But we needed someone in Halifax to receive and release him. I messaged a vegan group in Halifax and found a woman, Beth Kent, who agreed to receive him and release him."
To limit the lobster's discomfort, Loughead decided to overnight him - at a cost of $225. Sure enough, the next day, he arrived safe and sound.
