Lion…it’s what’s for dinner?

Just in case you missed the uproar (no pun intended) during the World Cup, there was in fact a restaurant in Arizona that recently included lion meat on their menu. The Il Vinaio restaurant in Mesa was offering lion burgers claimed to be raised from a “free-range” lion farm in Illinois. Surprisingly, lion is perfectly legal to eat in the US. However,tigers and ligers are not…sorry Napoleon.
