Tuscon restaurant to offer lion meat tacos

Why aren’t there more meats on a stick?

And why aren’t there more lion-meat tacos?

The Arizona Daily Star reports Boca Tacos y Tequila, a Tucson taco restaurant, will start accepting orders for African lion tacos, to go along with previous tacos featuring alligator, elk, kangaroo, rattlesnake and turtle.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration, lion and other game meat can be sold as long as the species isn’t endangered.

Most of Boca’s exotic tacos range between US$3 and US$4. The lion tacos will cost US$8.75 apiece.
