I'll cook and eat a corgi!

Royal-tea ... corgi and McGowan

AN artist is launching a demo against the Royal Family — by eating a corgi.

Mark McGowan, 37, will scoff one of the dogs, the Queen’s favourite pets, on a live radio show next week.

The artist — who once ate a swan in a performance art show — said it was in protest at the Royals’ treatment of animals.

He said: “I’m raising awareness at the inability of the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to prosecute Prince Philip and his friends for shooting a fox this year. It was left to fight for life for five minutes then beaten to death.”

The corgi, which died at a breeding farm last week, will be served up on London’s 104.4 Resonance FM on May 29.

But RSPCA chiefs blasted the stunt. A spokeswoman said: “If the dog’s dead he’s free to eat it.

“But we did look at the incident with Prince Philip and decided no offence was committed. I’d suggest Mr McGowan try a private prosecution.”

McGowan, of Peckham, South London, earlier pushed a peanut to Downing Street using just his nose.
