A tuxedo clad Mark McGowan ate a corgi yesterday in protest of the British Royal Family's treatment of animals. The controversial performance artist and vegetarian ingested meatballs made from a corgi—the Queen's favourite breed of dog—live on the radio, sharing his meal with Yoko Ono.
This latest stunt by McGowan was meant to draw attention to Prince Philip, who the artist slammed for “shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for five minutes and then beating it to death with a stick.”
The corgi from which McGowan's meatballs originated died on a corgi breeding farm. Perhaps McGowan should have enlisted the Prince's hunting skills, as the meat looked like it could have used a bit of tenderizing.
