Lion Tacos cause controversy in Florida
Taco Fusion in Tampa, Florida was offering lion as a taco filling alongside other exotic offerings, which included bison, shark, ostrich, gator, gazelle, rabbit, duck, camel and kangaroo.
The owner of the restaurant, Ryan Gougeon said that selling the meat was well within its rights. “Just because someone at home doesn’t want it, doesn’t mean a hundred other people don’t,” he said.
After receiving backlash and protests from people on the internet the restaurant has stopped selling the lion meat tacos.
