Start regulating the sale of lion meat

Dear USDA,

Please ban the sale of lion meat for human consumption.

I was appalled to learn that restaurants can legally serve lion meat and it can be sold in stores. Some brokers even advertise it as "USDA-approved," even though lions are not on the list of species regularly inspected by the USDA. I'm concerned that the lack of regulatory oversight -- including exemption from the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act, among other laws -- means that the animals may be mistreated and that the meat has not been proven fit for human consumption.

I urge you to be proactive in protecting animals and people. Please start regulating the sale of lion meat for human consumption.
