THIS DAY IN HISTORY
September 8, 1981 (Measleyville, NY) -- The Measleyville Post-Journal-News-Gazette reports the death of local legend Libby McSnork, the Crazy Lobster Lady. McSnork's home at the time of her passing contained 4,391 live rescue lobsters, many saved from the supermarket during the September Seafood Special Sale! week. Police took custody of the lobsters, promising their escort to a safe location, but a sergeant from the department was seen buying ten pounds of butter later that week.
