I cannot believe this! A restaurant in Wichita, Kansas was planning to serve lion as part of its cruel Ultimate Eating Experience dinner it plans to hold. Due to the severe number of protest lion meat has been removed from the menu that night. They still plan on serving crocodile, alpaca and kangaroo.
Here is a link to the petition mentioned in the above article that I was invited to sign which got brought this to my attention. We can still send a message by signing it, even though the meat has been pulled.
The thing that bothers me the most about this is that it’s not illegal for this guy to do this in the United States. It may very well spur a grass root movement to make it illegal to eat such precious beasts, but the fact that it seemed like a good idea at the time is what gets me. The guy is obviously a complete bobo (foolish idiot in several of the oriental languages)!
I did a search for the meats available here in Arizona and found this: A Mesa, AZ taco hut slinging lion tacos in Jan 2011! This is something that needs to be dealt with a changed. I think of all the cat owners and animal lovers in the United States. We just can’t put up with this.

P.S. Thanks Dan. I have a previous article from a while ago.
