Exotic Tacos Yanked from Florida Restaurant Menu Following Complaints

Exotic Tacos Yanked from Florida Restaurant Menu Following Complaints

Taco Fusion, which opened in Tampa, FL in February, prides itself in serving unique tacos. This means using beaver, kangaroo and shark meat, but its lion tacos were pulled from the menu after a social media crusade. Earlier this week, when the lion meat tacos were made available, people became irate because how dare they pack tacos with lion meat.

The restaurant claims it acquired the meat from a well-known vendor in Illinois, and Big Cat Rescue says lions aren't endangered. Though a Taco Fusion manager told people who criticized the taco to avoid eating it, the restaurant buckled and removed it from the menu, promising that this would be the last time it would be available.

Nobody will miss the lion tacos. Nobody.
