Animal Activists Protest Local Restaurant

More than two dozen protesters stood outside Sparrow + Wolf restaurant on Spring Mountain Road Sunday night for what was the second demonstration in four days.

Members of Animal Action Las Vegas were protesting against the restaurant not only for serving meat but also its use of animal parts like liver and foie gras. 

There were also counter-protesters present, who said they support business owner Brian Howard.

Some of the protesters were angry over Howard’s social media photos that include himself posing with parts of slaughtered animals.

Howard said on Facebook he has received death threats since the protests and is meeting with law enforcement about them Monday.
