‘If I shoot it, I’m gonna eat it’: Tea Party congressman reveals he killed and ATE a LION on safari in Africa

A U.S. congressman shot a lion while on safari in Zimbabwe and then ate it for dinner.

Republican Paul Broun, who represents Georgia’s 10th Congressional District, told a conservative magazine: ‘If I kill it, I’m gonna eat it.’

Mr Broun made the unusual admission in National Review Online, adding: ‘The lion wasn’t particularly tasty, it was kind of chewy, but I ate it.’

Broun, a medical doctor, told the political newspaper Roll Call in 2010 that his big kill came that year in Zimbabwe.

‘After eating this animal, the natives called me Boss Shumba, which means Boss Lion,’ he boasted.

‘They’d never seen a guy come and actually eat a lion.’

But the lawmaker said he preferred the warthog he once hunted, saying, ‘it’s actually pork.’

‘I had roast warthog,’ he said. ‘It was cooked in a French style. I’m a French cook myself, and I like to cook things with some fancy sauces and stuff that I’ll make at home. That was excellent.’

Broun didn’t say whether he ate parts of a bear he shot, whose stuffed body also has a place of honor in hits office.
