This Gulf restaurant was serving HYENA MEAT to customers

A restaurant in Saudi Arabia was shut down and fined SR10,000 after it was found serving hyena meat to customers.

During a surprise visit, officials of the municipality of Surat Obaidah found that a restaurant in the area was closed and charged by a worker, while cooking was underway inside, reported Arab News.

This drew suspicion from the authorities, who immediately cordoned off the restaurant and confiscated the meat, which turned out to be that of hyena.

One kilogram of hyena meat costs SR200 or more, depending on the age of the animal, according to a doctor quoted by Arab News. No health benefits or harmful effects of this meat have been scientifically proved, he added.
