Performance artist Mark McGowan has eaten what he claims was a cooked corgi in a protest over the Royal Family’s treatment of animals.
McGowan performed the stunt on London radio station Resonance FM, and shared his meal with fellow guest Yoko Ono.
"To me it was, as an art piece, exhilarating," he said after the show.
The artist’s protest concerned the alleged mistreatment of a fox during a hunt led by Prince Philip in January. The RSPCA said the fox did not suffer.
McGowan, who is a vegetarian, said he wanted his unusual meal to raise awareness about "the RSPCA’s inability to prosecute Prince Philip and his friends".
"We love our animals in Britain. Why is it then that we then allow people - especially people who are supposed to be ambassadors for this country - to treat animals with such disrespect?"
The corgi, which died at a breeding farm, was minced and cooked with apple, onion and seasoning.

Lately we have been uber-enviro-nerds with the talk of wind turbines, deep lake cooling and environmentally friendly roller coasters. I just felt the need to put up another nifty energy saving device that was invented by a Bloke from the UK named Peter Hughes. He has created a ramp that absorbs kinetic energy from breaking or slowing down while driving your car over regular roadways. The idea is simple, use the cars wasted kinetic energy to power the streetlights and stoplights. There are a series of plates installed under the road which the cars will drive over, more than likely around stop lights or other areas where the traffic will be slowed. The weight of the car slightly shifts the plates, causing kinetic energy to be created. The energy is stored and then used to power whatever. It is better described on the official site, so I will just do you a favor and quote it here.
