A restaurant in Mesa, Arizona is selling lion meat burgers. Enter the animal rights activists:
Dr. Grey Stafford with the World Wildlife Zoo says that serving a threatened species sends the wrong message. "Of all the plentiful things to eat in this country, for someone to request that or to offer that... I was rather stunned," says Stafford.
... Animal rights advocates are expected to protest outside[the restaurant].

Second, here are the awesome Mitchell and Webb making the same point, towards the end of this sketch-- animals we think are tasty never seem to go extinct.
