SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – A rare yellow lobster pulled from Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay – a one-in-30-million find – was found dead Friday in its protective tank.
The University of Rhode Island, which was keeping the crustacean, said it hadn’t eaten for several days and was “stressed to death” from too much attention.
The yellow lobster was caught last month by lobsterman Denny Ingram.
He temporarily made it available for display in the lobstermen’s co-op building at the State Pier in Newport. Ingram then gave the lobster to URI, which kept the lobster in a secluded protective tank.
