Yeah, they're about 10 minutes away from me. They get in trouble a lot for selling endangered animals.`

Some people who eat lion and other exotic meats have "Twentieth Century" disease and can't eat regular meat because they have allergies to everything.

On the other hand, lions are among many species facing extinction outside of zoos because of poaching, habitat loss, canine distemper and other diseases introduced by humans and their domestic animals, and so forth.

I can see something to be said for and against this legislation.

If you ever make your way to Kenosha, let me know. I've been wanting to try some of their stock without driving for 4 hours or paying exorbitant shipping costs.

Somebody made up this story. I can always tell when someone's lion.

Rep. Luis Arroyo, D-Chicago, is sponsoring the measure. He would not identify the two places where he thinks lion meat is for sale, but he said slaughtering the animal for food is inhumane and needs to be outlawed.

Hurrrrrr . . .

God, I so don't miss Food Lion.  They had the shadiest stock I have ever seen.  Same with Shopper's Food Warehouse.

Maybe it was Mtn. Lion.  Cause that would be much more plausible.  Plus mtn. lion is actually really good.

Only Asiatic Lions are endangered and genuinely close to extinction, African lions while below pre white colonization levels are not terribly close to extinction and are not considered endangered

I ate lion once.  It was served at a private, fancy Wild Game Dinner event.  I didn't ask where they got it.

But it was farking GOOD.

I'm so relieved that Illinois has solved its high murder rate, massive corruption issues, education problems, and budget issues so they can concentrated on truly pressing problems like eating lion meat.

It's not any more (or less) "inhumane" than any other slaughter method; it's no more (or less) "inhumane" than slaughtering a cow or pig for human consumption.

It's stupid and wasteful because we have about ten billion cattle in the world; they're in no danger of going extinct any time soon and we don't need the genes to keep the breeding stock healthy. We only have a few hundred healthy captive lions, and we need all the genetic diversity we can get. That is the reason not to be killing lions for meat.

Unless you're opposing killing any animal for meat, in which case, fine; but don't be singling out lion-slaughter as somehow more inhumane than cattle-slaughter.

Well there are like 50,000 or so wild lions, also in addition to the several hundred captive lions of known bloodlines (where they can make sure they arent inbreeding them) there is several thousand captive lions whose bloodlines are unknown that could potentially be used if they was desperate enough to risk inbreeding.

There used to be a restaurant up in Killington, Vt that had all sorts of African game on the menu.  Had lion, giraffe, and elan and one or two others I can't remember.  Was all really good and they said that it was all farm raised.  I'd imagine lion meat is really expensive because it takes a lot of meat to raise them.
 
2013-03-10 01:50:15 AM  
"Those are zoo animals," he told the Chicago Sun-Times. "... There's other meats we can eat besides the lions."

Yeah, that is some mighty fine reasoning their, Lou.

Yes, in Vermont.  Don't know how my family found out about it, but we ate there about 15 years ago.  It's not longer there but I was able to find a mention of the restaurant in a NYT article about Killington.

http://www.nytimes.com/1997/01/05/travel/killington.html?pagewanted= al l&src=pm

We actually took the leftovers with us and stopped at a rest stop on the way home to have them for lunch.  I can truthfully say that I ate lion and giraffe in a McDonald's.

I was on a trip and got sick from some deli meat there - BAD sick. If by saying "You don't miss it" you mean they are out of business, I give that a hearty Grumpy Cat's, "GOOD!"

"saying he knows of at least two places where he believes the meat is sold. "

This guy told me that they were selling lion meat, so I told my buddy who knows this dude that hangs out with a polictician that can do something to stop it.

Dad used to take me to this Chicago Place. All sorts of exotic meats for dinner.
I remember having lion, bear, whale (it was legal at the time), elk, zebra, etc.

Not saying its a great idea, but they arent genuinely endangered like tigers or asiatic lions, that is all.

And anytime someone checks, the meat they sell isn't really the 'exotic' they claim. Some sap buys lion, they go home with horse. The papers have done a bunch of stories on them over the years,
