(Newser) – A group of Danish students were kicked off Facebook when they posted photos of themselves cooking and eating a cat, the Copenhagen Post reports. The students intended to point out the hypocrisy in designating some animals pets and others food, but have infuriated the almighty social-networking site and animal rights groups alike. “This is the worst way to draw people's attention,” said the director of a Danish rescue group.

"We wanted people to think about what it was they were putting in their mouths,' said one of the students in defense. “And just why is it that it's worse to eat a cat than a pig?'” But really, does it taste like ... ? "A little like chicken, with an aftertaste of fur. Slightly chewy," the group found.
