    The kindest and most humane way to kill crab is to stick it in the freezer for at least 4 hours, this makes sure the crab just goes to sleep and is fully unconscious, then from the freezer put straight into boiling water, no pause. It means the crab`s body kicks it before the crab even gets chance to wake up. Nicer than getting your eyes cut off, poor thing.

    Yes... if you would like to torture a crab slowly until death, then plz put it in a freezer. Look honey, crabs are not lizards... they die almost instantly when any part of them touch boiling water due to the huge shock to their system. There is no pain... it`s like turning lights out. You are almost as misinformed as whatever retard made this instruction to "cut off the front part of its face". I have been eating blue crabs for 20 years and not once have I seen or heard of that nonsense!!

    This is how you clean soft shelled crabs. The next step is to flip them over and cut off their genitals. Cutting off their faces first doesn`t seem so awful, now does it.

    "they don`t feel pain... they have no central nervous system..."

    I`m no expert on the subject, but crustaceans have been found to show behavioral responses to negative stimuli (i.e. avoiding an electric shock after being shocked the first time). It`s likely not felt on as many levels as a human would feel it, and it`s impossible to say unless you happen to be a crab, but I`d say that any animal that has a way of knowing that it is being injured, and then avoiding that situation to prevent future injury, is capable of feeling "pain" on some level.

    Of course you don`t really get much chance to remember and respond to the pain if you`re getting your face cut off with a pair of scissors...

    "This kills the crab." is going to become a meme. There`s no stopping it now.

    alliZILLA, are you suggesting it would be more humane to let the crab exist for no other purpose other than to have its legs ripped off to be eaten only to have them regrow so they can be ripped off and eaten again and again until it dies of old age?
    I wonder if you could do that to cows? Maybe just punch cookie sized chunks out of it a few at a time. You may be onto something here hmm..
    I`ll begin production of the "Bovine Biscuit-Nator" immediately. Patent pending, dibs, double stamped no erasies.

    @ everyone who thinks that this crab is dead: This crab has just molted. It is currently soft-shelled. It can`t pinch you. I`ve done this. They just lay there until you work the shears into their faces. And believe me they react then. Whether or not they "feel pain", they sure as hell do not want you doing it.

    This little fella will no doubt be soaked in buttermilk, dredged in cornmeal, deep fried, and put on a sandwich. (Preferrably with a healthy schmear of remoulade.)

    For those of you who think you boil them. No.

    Blue crabs are steamed. To death. Delicious, steamy, death. I like a mixture of water, beer, apple cider vinegar, and pickling spice for the steam-pot. The crabs should be sprinkled with a mix of Old Bay and sea salt once they are in there, and you want to cook them to an internal temp of 170 F. Just shove your thermometer through the eye and into the body.

    "Yes because we TOTALLY survived for thousands of years by eating nothing but salads."

    What we did for thousands of years in the past needn`t be the model for how we live in the present. Otherwise, SHUT UP WOMAN AND OBEY YOUR MEN!

    If you want to eat it alive, be my guest.

    Shears are for precision.

    Humans are omnivores. Our bodies are designed in a way to facilitate the consumption of all 4 food groups and digest them fairly easily. What we choose to eat is personal preference.

    Because you aren`t willing to kill what you eat doesn`t mean you shouldn`t eat it. I have never killed a cow, and I have eaten a lot of cows. Give me a pair of shears and I will gladly cut its head off if it means I get to eat it.

    I`ve got no problem with cutting a crabs face off (well...that`s debatable), but do you have to do it with scissors?
    That just seems unnessasaraly cruel.
    A knife seems like it`d be less painful, but maybe I`ve just seen too many horror films with scissors.

    I`m no "aww don`t kill animals!" person at all - but small crabs just seem senseless to kill. Other than king crabs, you have to hack through the whole body and end up with a tiny bit of meat. It would be like killing a cow to get 3 hamburgers.

    Aw. I once watched a cooking show where the chef was making stuffed crab (or crab...something...) and he pulled the shell off it`s back while the thing was still living. Omg. It grossed me out so bad I havent eaten crab since. Isnt there some way to kill it humanely first? No, I`m not into PETA or anything (humans have to eat), but come on. It just seems so cruel to them. They may be dumb crustaceans but still all animals/sea creatures/whatever feel pain. That would be like performing brain surgery on a human without anesthetic (sp? sorry).

    sorry but pretty much any way for killing an animal is going to cause it pain

    to me this is exactly the same as killing a cow with a iron bolt to the head or killing a chicken by milding electricuting it then cutting its throat

    if you can`t deal with the fact an amial has to die for you to eat it then don`t eat it.

    the only animal products i object to are ones where the animal is subjected to more pain/ inhumane conditions then necessary, such as white veal, fois grais, battery chickens, ect
