i wonder what the least intelligent animal we eat is. by we i mean westerners. cause i know chinese people like to eat bugs and ****, which is pretty humane of them i must say.

Most meat is bred, slaved, and slaughtered in an inhumane fashion, not hunted in the wild and prayed over next to a creek.

Not that I don't eat said meat. The more inhumane, usually, the more affordable.

Yeah I'm under no Illusions as to what goes on, I don't agree with it but I will still eat it. I'm not sure what my line would be really.

So would any of you eat meat not normally consumed in the US if you were in another country?

Dog? Horse? etc

I'd try it.

Defo. Can't understand why horse is so taboo in the UK. People will eat kebab meat and 'chicken' nuggets but we don't sell fresh, healthy horse meat (with the customer's consent)

I'd try dog but reckon it would taste like the wet dog smell.

I imagine horse and dog being too lean and musky, like venison (deer) which I have actually hunted and eaten; it's not near as good as beef, chicken, and pork. Though I have an uncle that makes a killer venison pepperoni.

I've eaten all kinds of weird **** traveling through parts of China that hadn't yet developed to cater to Western tastes. Most of the time I wouldn't ask but I know I've had eel, pigeon, and wild dog.

i agree. i remember there was some controversy over jack in the bucket or some place like that serving horse meat here and telling people it was beef. i mean businesses should be honest in what they're selling but beyond that i don't see the difference between eating a horse or a cow. if it comes out good then the **** do i care which animal it was?

i remember some rednecks in florida gave my parents alligator meat and they had me try it and they told me it was chicken. then after they were like nah it's actually alligator. and i was like why didn't you just say it was alligator then? it really doesn't bother me.

where i draw the line is probably just eating bugs and **** like that. not morally i just think it's gross for irrational human reasons.

Something similar happened here as well. Think it was frozen food/ready meals but basically the same thing.

In some parts of Europe they would be complaining that we were getting horse for the same price as beef

I would try bugs, witchetty grubs are meant to be nice and scorpions look interesting. There is tonnes of stuff I would like to eat after seeing it eaten on survival programs.

Alligator is up there, also snake. Apparently they're all edible, meant to be decent meat. Cow's blood too, saw some tribe in Africa do it, where they fire an arrow into it's neck, bleed it and then heal the cow no harm done. Reckon I'd like it.

Had frog's legs once as my cousins dad is French and he brought them over. They are delicious.

I've had Alligator, and although it did have similar characteristics of chicken, it was quite gamey. Even after soaking it in coca cola for a couple of hours. I've been here a few times too:

wild game, Czimer's Game & Seafood, Inc. Homer Glen, IL Home

Although, I haven't ventured past the Alligator and Buffalo yet.
