    Default Lion Meat Returns to Arizona, via Tacos

    Boca Tacos y Tequila, a locally owned taqueria in Tucson, AZ, has announced that it will be serving lion tacos on February 16, a sort of belated Valentine's Day present for those who take their declarations of love with a side of grilled Simba.

    The tacos must be preordered (and paid for) by 3 p.m. on February 7, according to the Arizona Daily Star. They'll be served as Sonoran-style street tacos, available with cabbage, guacamole, pickled red onions, diced cucumbers and any of six house-made salsas, for $8.75 each.

    The special is part of the restaurant's "Exotic Taco Wednesdays," in which owners Brian and Maria Jose Mazon appear to be cycling through a veritable Noah's Ark of meats. They've served python, alligator, elk and kangaroo, as well as frog legs, turtle, duck, Rocky Mountain oysters and the "most talked about" (so far) -- rattlesnake.

    Arizonans who developed a hankering for lion meat last summer after a restaurant in Mesa offered a one-day-only special on lion burgers will finally have a chance to savor the big-cat meat again.

    While Il Vinaio, the restaurant that served lion burgers in June, billed its out-of-Africa special as a celebration of the World Cup and a chance for diners to broaden their culinary horizons, the owners of Boca Tacos y Tequila have no qualms about admitting what they're after: publicity.

    "In all reality, what I want is just people to know that I'm here," Brian Mazon told the Daily Star. "That's the way to do it. You can't get these tacos anywhere else."

    No doubt the animal rights activists who picketed Il Vinaio last summer are now eager to know where Mazon's restaurant is, too.

    Lions are endangered. The more this happens (legally), the better off the species will be.

    How can anybody eat and enjoy one of those tacos or burgers knowing the meat came from an endangered animal?

    I just can't fathom that.

    Panthera Leo, or the African lion, as a whole is "Vulnerable" which is one step above "Endangered" on the 9-point scale. In West Africa, though, the species is "Endangered" as it is isolated from the other regions. The population trend of all Panthera Leo is decreasing.

    The only subspecies, the Asian lion (Panthera Leo Persica) is "Critically Endangered," one step below endangered (http://www.iucnredlist.org/apps/redlist/details/15951/0)

    My point was that farms like the one in Perris, CA, as well as eating the animal is actually good for the species. When people own an animal, they have an incentive to protect it. We don't really have any shortages of animals that people are allowed to own and/or we eat.

    Any animal that you couldn't really triumph over in a fair fight, you shouldn't eat, I think. Like lion, tiger and elephant. Bad karma there.
