Squirrel off menu after protests
The restaurant said it was committed to interesting dishes
A new squirrel dish introduced by a restaurant has been taken off the menu after staff were threatened with violence by animal rights protesters.

Chefs at the Hadley Bowling Green Inn near Worcester came up with squirrel terrine as a starter this summer, using squirrel and foie gras pate.

The restaurant said it is committed to providing fresh and interesting dishes but it is off the menu for the moment.

Customers were also threatened with violence.

Earlier this year the Halfway House in Malvern refused to change its menu after graffiti was left on the building in protest at it hosting a lobster festival.
