“Florida restaurant sells lion meat tacos”.
Taco Fusion, a small south Tampa restaurant, is causing quite a stir over a unique item offered on their menu: lion. For $35 dollars taco lovers can try lion, as in, the king of the jungle. "I thought the lion was good," said one patron. Since Taco Fusion opened in February they have built a reputation for their unconventional taco filings. They have previously offered game like beaver and otter, but the controversy didn't start until lion meat made it's way onto their menu. "I really don't like that at all," said McKenzie Bremer who opposed the restaurant's decision and said that a threatened (endangered) species should not be served at a taco place. The owners say the lion meat comes from a vendor who raises lions strictly for sale of consumption.
