Lion Burgers = Bad Idea

lionburger Lion Burgers = Bad Idea

An Arizona restaurant owner thought it would be a fantastic idea to serve burgers made with African lion meat to give customers a South African experience during the World Cup. The public reaction has caused nothing but a huge headache for Cameron Selogie. Il Vinaio in Mesa has received a bomb threat and more than 150 e-mails from protesters. He says African lions are on the protected list, but not endangered.The restaurant ordered 10 pounds of African lion meat from a USDA-regulated, free-range farm in Illinois, which Selogie says he researched to make sure they were humane. It’s mixed with ground beef, and the restaurant says it’s serving about 15 burgers a day.

USDA spokesman Jim Brownlee says lion meat is an uncommon dish, but knows of no prohibitions against it

    I hope everyone who eats these burgers, gets sick as a dog, then sues Cameron Selogie for everything he’s worth. They are all morally bankrupt.
