Austin, Texas television station KVEU, an ABC affiliate, and FOX 2 Now in St. Louis were among several national television news organizations to air a CNN News report on five rare orange lobsters caught recently in Maine waters. The reports cited research by the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, which has said chances of catching a rare blue or an orange lobster — before being cooked — are 1 in a million, and that the chances of catching a yellow lobster is 1 in 30 million. An albino lobster? A 1 in 100 million chance, the report said.
