(WICHITA, Kan.) — A Wichita Chef says after all of the concern raised about an upcoming exotic meat event, he's pulling African lion from the menu.
Eyewitness News first told you about the issue Thursday. Taste and See Chef Jason Febres says after seeing all of the concern from the public, he'll no longer make lion.
"After careful consideration, we have decided to remove the Lion from our Ultimate Dining Experience. We wish to note that the small percentage of people who genuinely and intelligently plead their case was what persuaded us to reconsider, and we are not submitting to the threats, vulgarities, pressure or blatant disregard for our rights through the expression of yours, but rather to the few voices of reason. As to the supporters for our restaurant, this event, and our position on the matter, we whole heartedly appreciate the continued backing and hope you respect our decision."
