Born Free USA's Adam Roberts appeared on "Inside Edition" on May 17 to explain why restaurants should not be serving lion meat. Watch a video of the segment. Lion meat is appearing with increasing frequency on menus across the land. Just this month, lion tacos debuted at Taco Fusion in Tampa, FL. As Born Free USA showed in a 2011 undercover investigation, the lion meat industry is shady and under-regulated, and places both people and animals at risk. Consumers, restaurant owners and policy-makers are all equally responsible for putting a stop to this risky business by refusing to buy or sell lion meat and by pushing for and passing stronger regulations and prohibitions on the possession, slaughter and sale of lions in the United States.
