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.

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.

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

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.
