A "roaring" controversy is brewing in Burlingame because of a restaurant offering lion meat. Known for its exotic fair, Mokutanya Yakitori restaurant is serving the 70-dollar dish from what they say is African lion meat that is farm-raised in Illinois. While it is not illegal to serve lion, the SPCA tells "KPIX" the animal is at risk of going extinct. The owner says he has enough lion to serve customers for the next two weeks.
