I know it says not, but this has to be an April fool's joke. Even if it's not, it's still in very bad taste.

They're protected species. No eating going on.

The whole trade is just plain wrong.

Florida restaurant puts lion meat on the menu

Putting aside any political or moral issues:

During the fur trade days, the Mountain Men preferred puma (i.e., mountain lion) over all other meats. This is the only case I know of where a predator was the food of choice for a group of people.

But, then again, the Mountain Men would eat the steaming guts of a fresh-killed bison by two of them starting on each end and gobbling towards each other. So they had rather strange food preferences.

The fact is, though, predators are strong-tasting, with a distinct gamey flavor. Almost to the point of tasting rancid. While I have not tasted lion, I have tried coyote and fox. As a result, it escapes me why anyone would pay good money to eat any part of a predator---other than the cachet of being able to brag about having done so.

I'm assuming, for reasons listed, already that it doesn't taste very good.

But, I absolutely hate when people compare the ethics of eating different game. Like vegetarians who are so, because they are animal lovers, but eat fish. My inlaw won't eat say....chicken, but will eat 100 shrimp. baffles me. Or, people who think it's wrong to eat one animal over another because it's "cute".

of course, my thoughts are setting aside the ethics in hunting, farming, those animals, that's a whole 'nother discussion.

I had a huge argument with someone recently, on how a couple was jailed......for piercing cat's ears and snipping their tails. One person said "those people should die". Really? I asked if they ate KFC, or know anyone with a doberman or rott.

Or worse, those who proclaim they are vegetarians, but the only thing they don't eat is red meat---i.e., beef. Somehow or other, fish and poultry don't count.

I remember on a bicylcle tour we took how all the other people had registered as vegetarians. This is important because on such tours you kick in to a central kitty, and the outfitter buys the lunch food for everybody.

So, in this case, the outfitter stocks up on various salads and the like---except for smoked turkey for Friend Wife and I.

First day out, and by the time we get to the picnic area, the smoked turkey is gone. All those "vegetarians" had scoffed it down.

That night, at the Inn, there was salmon on the menu, and they all ordered it. I couldn't help wondering, in my best stage whisper, what kind of bush a salmon grew on.

I'm lost in a jungle...and starving. A lion jumps out and attacks me. I manage to defend my life and kill it.
First thing I'd do is fire up the grill, then start butchering.

As Roger Waters so eloquently wrote:
Forgive me Father for I have sinned.....but it was either me or him..."

That is probably the only reason/situation you'd get me to eat a lion....and I would enjoy it, I promise.

Outside of that, I simply have an issue eating most intelligent animals (with the complete exception of pig...they're smart...but god probably shouldn't have made them out of bacon)

Dolphins, whales, elephants, orangatans. In many regard's I see them as equals...and I prefer to eat beings that are beneath me.

to be honest i would be willing to try lion. also all the other forbidden animals like dog, cat,ferrett,wolf,coyote,dingo,eagle,rhino,elephant ,whale,pumas,hyenas,koala bears,kangaroo,wooly mammoth(if you can find me one),dolphin,hamster,rat,guinea pig,and really just about anything (as long as its cooked right) except for primates (including humans and monkeys),brains,and straight blood. my opinion is that the worl hunger crisis would be fixed if people started farming these so called as food. there easier to raise (money wise) and are a good source of protien. I however do not condone the hunting of endangered species or the eating of my neighbors dog or cat (my cats are up for the highest bidder tho.)
