Taco Joint In Florida Serving Lion Meat

Huff Po – Lion tacos, anyone? You won’t find them at a Florida restaurant, which sold out of the controversial item despite a backlash that included online threats. Taco Fusion in Tampa, Fla. offered lion as a taco filling alongside its other exotic offerings, which include bison, shark, ostrich, gator, gazelle, rabbit, duck, camel and kangaroo. Iguana, bear and zebra will be on the menu in the future, writes local CBS affiliate WTVY. Owner Ryan Gougeon told NBC affiliate WFLA that selling the meat is well within his rights. “Just because someone at home doesn’t want it, doesn’t mean a hundred other people don’t,” he said. “And America is still free and we are still allowed to provide services that people want.” Taco Fusion further defends the serving of lion in an undated blog post on its web site: Paranoia has set in as some folks have had their reality challenged. They say that we’ve “crossed the line” by serving Lion. But let me ask you this, did you cross the line when you ate Beef, chicken, or Pork this week? … Are you a vegan, who consumed vegetables this week? Were those vegetables sprayed with pesticides, and picked by illegal Mexican migrant labor that is exploited for low wages, long hours, and no benefits? Gougeon allegedly began receiving online threats after the restaurant announced the promotion. But those threats didn’t stop the lion tacos from selling out, nor did the price — a pound of lion meat costs about $220, whichbreaks down to about $35 a taco.

Move over Horse Meat! There’s a new sheriff in town. Lion Meat is where its at. I don’t know why but I feel like eating lion is totally acceptable. Horse meat didn’t gross me out like it grossed out a lot of the public during Horse Meat-steria. But I certainly didn’t think it was appetizing. Lion though – lion sounds like it could be tasty as fuck. Maybe its just because the Lion is the King of the Jungle and I only wanna eat the best. Chowing down on that lion that roars in the MGM logo would be a pure power move. But also don’t Lions just sit around and nap and fuck and eat food that the wives hunt? Like 24 hours a day thats all they do. Some lazy ass animal kings right there. I bet you that makes for some fucking delicious meat. I wouldn’t even wanna tarnish it by eating it in taco form. No sour cream or salsa or anything like that to fuck with the quality of my lion meet. Just gimme a Simba Filet with some red wine reduction and I’ll fucking feast.
