As a general rule, carnivores do not make the best tasting meat. It tends to be gamey, to say the least; stringy, and tough.

So I wouldn't eat a lion burger, myself. Not because of the hoopla, but because I wouldn't expect it to taste good. And I'm not interested in the catchet of being able to brag about having eaten African lion.

No salmon burgers? I've had buffalo, vege, and... bubba burgers (don't really know what's in a bubba burger, hopefully not the guy that works down at the boat repair yard)

To satisfy my curiosity I would take a taste, what the heck I have had chicken, turkey, buffalo, vege, veal  and ostrich burgers.
That would be about what I would do. I have heard that cats taste bad, something to do with  the meat tasting a bit like their urine smells. I have no idea if that goes all the way up the ladder to the big cats though.

Felines meat just dosn't attract my attention at all ....being the owner of cats as pets .....

I don't think I would order an entire burger for myself as I have no idea what the meat is like but if 4 or 5 other people want to all go in on 1 burger so everyone gets a bite or 2 than sure I would give it a try. Can't be worse than Durian.

I wouldn't go looking for it. I wouldn't buy it. If someone offered me a taste, I'd try it out of curiosity.

I don't like the idea of eating an animal that is fighting for survival (as a species), when there are so many other choices.

Are members of the cat family commonly eaten anywhere in the world? I don't think i'd even try it, let alone buy one. Nothing more than a gimmick, and a bad one at that!

Not to my knowledge, for the reasons given above.

However, the Mountain Men, during the American Fur Trade, were said to prefer puma meat over all others.

The last "authority" I trust is Wikipedia, for many reasons. I want other documentation before using them as a reference on any subject.

Let's keep in mind, too, that Indian Well's query used the key words "commonly eaten."

If we take the article at face value, what we find is that other than in times of deprivation or for ritual reasons, eating cat (and, presumably, the article references domestic cat, rather than wild animals) it actually is kind of rare. Some small, out of the way, populations supposedly developed a taste for it, but even within that country the practice is frowned upon (i.e., China, Italy). I certainly wouldn't apply the words "commonly eaten" to those countries. Nor would I accept as accurate statements about things reportedly happening, with no documentation. Show me, for instance, one Vietnamese recipe for cat.

I'm curious, too, whether anyone here besides me as eaten carnivore meat; and, if so, whether they're anxious to repeat the experience.
