Lion Burgers Served At Arizona Restaurant As Tribute To World Cup

While some choose to blow vuvuzelas or buy t-shirts, a restaurant in Arizona is celebrating the World Cup by adding lion burgers to its menu. That’s right folks. For a mere $21 patrons of Il Vinaio in Mesa can dine on lion meat served with a side of corn on the cob and spicy chips.

Apparently nothing says celebration like ingesting the meat of an animal synonymous with the event’s host country.

Restaurateur Cameron Selogie told Reuters, “We thought that since the World Cup was in Africa …that the lion burger might be interesting for some of our more adventurous customers.”

Selogie, who expects to sell 30 burgers by Thursday, says that the restaurant has received numerous emails and even some bomb threats from those who are unhappy with the formidable feline burgers. However he claims that once it is explained that the meat comes from lions raised on a farm in Illinois, much of the anger is quelled.

“Most of them, when we tell them the facts, that this is farm-raised and it doesn’t hurt the endangered animals, seem pretty reasonable,” Selogie said.

It’s difficult to determine what the real story is here—that a restaurant is serving King of the Jungle burgers or that there is a farm in Illinois that raises the big cats for human consumption. No matter, the decision to serve meat from a threatened species as a tribute to an international soccer—or football, depending on your locale—event is mind-boggling. It is safe to say that Il Vinaio should not be consulted in any type of PR situation.
