Angry Chef Butchers Deer in Front of Vegan Protesters

Angry Chef Butchers Deer in Front of Vegan Protesters
From Fine Dining Lovers - March 29, 2018

Hounded by vegan protesters outside his Toronto nose-to-tail restaurant for months, a chef finally snapped and began breaking down a deers leg in the window of the restaurant right in front of them.

As the Globe and Mail reports, Antler restaurant had been the subject of protests from a growing group of vegans led by local woman Marni Ugar since December, after an employee jokingly wrote Venison is the new kale on a restaurant chalkboard to taunt another local restaurant. Its worth noting that Antler has vegan options on its menu.

With the vegans having recently resorted to shouting murderer every time the door to the restaurant was opened and with foot fall down, chef-owner Michael Hunter, who is, aptly a hunter, forager and ethical farming advocate, decided he would stage his own protest I figured, Ill show them. Im going to have my own protest, he said.

Setting the deer leg down on a sanitised counter in the window, he began to butcher it much to the vegans disgust. The incident was captured on video below, and as you can see the police show up one point, but by all accounts, no charges were brought.

After butchering the meat Hunter headed back the kitchen, before returning with a cooked piece of venison, which he then proceeded to eat in the window in full view of the protestors, reports the National Post.

Gordon Ramsay loves to taunt vegans too...
