As a very adamant meat eater I must say, there really should be a few animals that get a pass just for the being cool factor. Lions should be one of them.

Why the outrage? Lions are some sort of charismatic megafauna. People care about them because they are visible. If they aren't endangered or particularly intelligent, eating one isn't ethically distinct from eating a cow.

If I was a lion, I would be thinking "ok, they're predators too then - but why just us - why aren't they serving hyena tacos too?"

I just don't think I would want to kill/eat something threatened or endangered even though I am into eating meat and hunting.

If I had the kinda money to go on safari I'd probably only go for 2 of the big 5 (leopards and cape buffaloes) since the other 3 are threatened or endangered (lions, elephants, rhinos)

Would I eat cat if it were on the menu? Probably not. Lion = Cat.

hailin:

I'm not into exotic animals though. I eat beef, chicken, lamb, fish, and seafood. Pork, deer/elk, and other exotics weird me out.

/Oh and I love bison


I don't think pork comes from where you think it comes from.

More Evolution In Action (as in people eliminating themselves from the gene pool)

I believe I'll stick with dietary guidelines from the Bible.

Yawn. Wake me up when the Soylent Green tacos are ready.

But the restaurant's decision is already causing a furore on its Facebook page.

'Lions...yummmm!' wrote user Larry Breeze. 'Screw the animal huggers - lions eat people....turnabout's fair play!'


Nice to see the people who find Alton Brown too confusing are weighing in...

Alton Brown wouldn't cook a lion, because first you'd need to catch a lion, and that would require a lion trap, and lion traps are "unitaskers."

Deer isn't exotic either. I was just saying I'm not fond of pig, deer, or exotics. Could have been worded better.

See my vest, see my vest,
Made from real gorilla chest!
Feel this sweater, there's no better,
Than authentic Irish setter.

See this hat, 'twas my cat,
My evening wear - vampire bat,
These white slippers are albino,
African endangered rhino.

Grizzly bear underwear,
Turtles' necks, I've got my share,
Beret of poodle, on my noodle
It shall rest!

See my vest, see my vest, see my vest!

Ah but then he would build a multi-use trap device. And assure you that it's cheap ans easy to make, even when it isn't.

Brilliant, sir.
