Big Dee-Dee the giant lobster is destined for a fate better than butter.

A Canadian bidding war broke out over the 22-pound crustacean, which was caught off the coast of New Brunswick.

Now, the owner of the fish store selling the lobster has had a change of heart.

Denis Breau says he's not selling Big Dee-Dee.

Instead, he's decided to donate the 100-year-old lobster to a marine science center to live out the rest of its days.

Bidding for Big Dee-Dee had hit $5,000 from a group which wanted to serve the giant lobster at a banquet.
