    (WFTS) A small south Tampa restaurant is causing quite a stir over a unique item offered on their menu: lion.
    For $35 dollars taco lovers can try lion, as in, the king of the jungle.

    "I thought the lion was good," said patron Lee Weiner. "It didn't taste too gamey to me, similar to steak."

    Since Taco Fusion opened in February they have built a reputation for their unconventional taco filings. They have previously offered game like beaver and otter, but the controversy didn't start until lion meat made it's way onto their menu.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    Do they sell them in a Lion King-Sized version?

    They could have a kids menu and feature the Simba Taco platter.

    Sometimes, you eat the lion, sometimes the lion eats you.

    Could they put this on the same menu as the Ikea moose meat lasagna?

    Why not eat a lion? It can't be much different than a regular cat, just more meat.

    They were saying this morning this the manager is getting death threats and threats of blowing the building up. I don't know why?

    Ridiculous, lions paws are too clumsy to dial phones and they certainly can't make bombs!

    Can decide which is worse: eating lion or being stupid enough to pay $35 for a taco.
