(Newser) – In what one executive calls the fast-food chain's "biggest stretch" yet—and what may be the biggest test of gastrointestinal bravery in recent memory—Arby's is offering a limited-time-only venison sandwich, MLive.com reports. According to WZZM, the Arby's Bambi Burger* features a "thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions with a berry sauce on a toasted roll." "You simply can't find this at other restaurant chains," Arby's executive Rob Lynch says. Diners at 17 Arby's locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Georgia will soon be able to find out if that's for a good reason or not. Arby's is offering the venison sandwich at locations where deer hunting is especially popular. "Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us to connect with them," Lynch says.
