Liam Neeson vs. PETA

PETA is after Liam Neeson and his new movie The Grey over its portrayal of wolves as hungry carnivores. PETA also hates that Liam Neeson chowed down on wolf meat to get into character:

Wolf jerky “was quite nice,” he told reporters in New York this month.

“I went up for seconds of the wolf stew,” he boasted to the Chicago Sun-Times. While some cast members “upchucked’’ at the great wolf barbecue organized by director Joe Carnahan, “all I can say is it was very gamy. But I’m Irish, so I’m used to odd stews. I can take it.”

“Just throw a lot of carrots and onions in there and I’ll call it dinner.”

Ed Craig: Is this true about Irish cuisine?
