Lion meat tacos cause uproar in Florida

TAMPA, Fla.

The small tacos at Tampa's Taco Fusion restaurant look enticing and many who try them say they are tasty. The meat in question -- lion meat.

It has some people wondering if it's even legal to serve something on the endangered species list.

The specialty tacos cost about $35. The restaurant also serves other exotic meats, such as beaver tacos and camel tacos.

Brad Barnett, the restaurant's operation manager, says it is all legal. His message to people: "If you don't like it, don't eat it."
