Strong Odor Leads To Massive Illegal Lobster Operation


Authorities in South Africa were called to investigate a very strong, offensive odor Thursday and found a pickup truck carrying thousands of spiny saltwater lobster tails.

It was definitely a "claws" for concern since it's illegal to possess the lobsters because of their environmental impact.

The massive load of almost 4,000 sea creatures had a street value of around $7,000. Police arrested a 57-year-old woman who is set to appear in court on Monday.
