In 2003, McGowan put a 27lb turkey on his head and walked backwards for 11 miles shouting at overweight people to bring attention to the obesity epidemic.
Remember when “vegetarian” artist Mark McGowan ate a swan as an anti-royalist protest? Well, now he’s an “animal rights activist” and he’s just eaten a corgi live on the radio (the very cool Resonance FM). Yoko Ono was there and had a taste too. They both agreed that corgi minced with apple and onion tasted disgusting.
The corgi was not killed for this stunt–s/he died on a breeding farm. In his defense, McGowan said, “I know some people will find this offensive and tasteless but I am doing this to raise awareness about the RSPCA’s inability to prosecute Prince Philip and his friends shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for five minutes and then beating it to death with a stick.” This is not McGowan’s first fox-related meat eating: in 2004, he “dined on fox to highlight the plight of crackheads.”
