McGowan, Mark (2007) Artist eats a corgi. [Art/Design Item]
|Type of Research:||Art/Design Item|
Mark McGowan ate a Corgi dog, in a live radio broadcast in May 2007, in a protest against the Royals and their treatment of animals. The dog died at a Corgi breeding farm in southern England, and was prepared and cooked for McGowan's consumption on the Bob and Roberta Smith radio programme on 104.4 Resonance FM, at 9pm in the evening.
McGowan says, '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 Phillip and his friends shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for five minutes and then beating it to death with a stick.'
