It’s unbelievable that restaurants in the US are allowed to serve lion meat. It’s almost impossible to find out where the meat comes from — it could be imported, from animals in zoos or circuses, or from lions raised on farms in the Midwest — the people who kill lions and sell them as meat aren’t exactly forthcoming … and they don’t have to be because lion meat isn’t really regulated by the government.
That’s not only bad news for the animals, who could be raised and slaughtered in inhumane conditions, but also for people. The diets and drug use in lions aren’t regulated for human consumption, which means lion meat could be dangerous to eat.
Over the summer, I started a petition when I heard about a restaurant in Kansas that was planning a dinner event with meat from lions and other exotic animals. That restaurant listened to us and took lion off the menu, but since then, I’ve heard of other restaurants in other parts of the country serving lion burgers. This shouldn’t be legal.
Right now, the US Fish and Wildlife Department is considering adding lions to the endangered species list. These amazing animals are already considered endangered by several other countries. I’ve done volunteer work with African lions and recently visited a sanctuary for big cats in the U.S. These majestic animals deserve better than to wind up on someone’s plate. They should be protected, not cooked and eaten!
Please join me in asking the USDA to ban the sale of lion meat.
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
I’ve wondered about this scene for absolutely ages. I could never find anything that explained the connection between Beckett and Jack, but now I get it. Wow! Captain Jack Sparrow just got a whole lot better.
Captain Jack Sparrow is probably one of the best fictional men around and all anyone remembers about him is that he’s insane and that he’s a bit of a womanizer. Nope. I would track him across the globe to marry him.
