Markets in Everything: Lion Meat Burgers
MESA, Ariz. - People are feeling the World Cup fever all over the globe. The South Africa tournament has captivated fans, and now a Mesa, Arizona restaurant is paying homage to the host country with a special menu item. But by offering that item, the owner has received threats. Cameron Selogie is selling burgers made from lion meat, starting Wednesday at Il Vinaio in Mesa.
The big cat is not illegal to eat in the U.S., and the African lions used to make the burgers were actually raised on a free-range animal farm in the Midwest.
