Have you heard about this? This is crazy, especially in this day and age. Zimbabwe's president is having a huge 91st birthday bash, and on the menu would be elephants – yes, elephants – and lion meat.
According to the Zimbabwe Chronicle, a prominent farmer will be proudly donating the game meat. Accorind to the article, the farmer, is quoted as saying:
“It was a resolution made by the board to donate towards the 21st February Movement. We are donating two elephants, two buffaloes, and we will be presenting a trophy lion to President Mugabe. This is our way of supporting the function and to ensure a celebratory mood in our community as well,”
Really? Couldn't they just dress up the animals and parade them through the party? They need to eat a couple of endangered elephants and a lion to “ensure a celebratory mood”? That is sick. Ever hear about a case of beer and some fireworks?
