Tucson taco restaurant removes lion tacos from its menu after threats

Well, that was quick, and rather unsurprising – the Tucson restaurant that planned to serve lion tacos will have to find a different shock meat. After receiving threats, the restaurant owner has decided to pick something less controversial.

After the announcement, everyone involved found themselves on the receiving end of threats – the owner, his family, the restaurant customers and even the vendors.

In our survey, 30.5% of our readers said they’d eat a lion taco, so there is clearly a market out there for exotic meats like this. Still, it’ll probably be a long time till Boca Tacos y Tequila attempts to serve something this controversial.
