Bite Club plans possibly bloody protest at DeSoto butcher shop

In October, Jason Miller show his disgust for the deer harvest at Shawnee Mission Park by dousing himself with a bucket of cow blood.

The animal rights activist is promising similar tactics at a protest at Steve’s Meat Market on Saturday afternoon.

The DeSoto shop — a family-run operation that’s been in business for the past four decades — received nearly $20,000 from Johnson County to butcher the deer carcasses from the cull in Shawnee Mission Park this fall and get the meat ready for distribution to needy families.

Miller says that Saturday’s 2 p.m. demonstration will target the business for butchering both wildlife and farm animals.
