Meat restaurant owner's brutal retaliation to vegan protesters

  • 29/03/2018

Vegan protesters are lashing out after a Canadian restaurant owner got revenge against them for demonstrating outside his business.

Toronto restaurant Antler specialises in native meat, including bison, boar, rabbit, duck and deer.

It's led to the eating place being targeted by angry animal rights activists.

But as they gathered for their fourth protest targeting the restaurant, one of the owners launched his retaliation.

He pulled out a deer leg and started butchering it right in front of the shocked vegans.

"We stood peacefully on public property with our signs; less than an hour into our protest Michael Hunter, owner of Antler, brought out the leg of a deer and began to carve it in front of us," event organiser Marni Jill Ugar wrote on Facebook post following the weekend protest.

"Once the deer was cooked Michael Hunter sat back down at the window to eat the dead deer.

"Look in the window. Look at Michael Hunter. That deer was treated like a joke. That deer was an innocent animal who did not want to die."

Mr Hunter has reacted to the protests, saying the restaurant's meat menu won't be dropped.

"We aren't surprised by the protest as it's not the first we have had," the restaurant told Yahoo7.

"At this time, we are focused on catering to our customers and remaining true to our identity as a restaurant and to Chef Michael's identity as a chef."
