Artist with taste for publicity to eat corgi in protest over royal hunting

‘An artist has caused outrage among animal activists by announcing plans to eat a corgi dog on live radio in a protest against the Royal Family.

Mark McGowan says he will tuck into the dead animal next week to highlight the death of a fox on a royal shoot.

The performance artist made his name by sitting in a bath full of baked beans and sausages to defend the English breakfast and pushing a monkey nut round London with his nose.

He 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 for shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for five minutes and then beating it to death with a stick.”‘
