Eating Squirrel

WHAT!!? Somebody wants to eat me?

There's a piece in the Post this week about this Brooklynite who says he likes to barbecue  squirrels in his backyard. He is Steven Rinella, host of the Sportsman Channel’s show “MeatEater”, who according to the piece,  travels the world in pursuit of big game, and has a freezer full of it at home.  There are instructions on how to bag a squirrel, how to eat squirrel, and even Steven Rinella’s recipe for Lemon-Thyme Squirrel.

What about that little thing called the law? Well, “If someone wanted to experience some type of hunting lifestyle [here in NYC], they first have to make a study of the laws and decide what they’re comfortable with. Some [laws] are open to some degree of interpretation”.

Interestingly, Mr. Rinella draws the line at eating dogs, saying “We come to eating with baggage.” That's an understatement! This comment shows the kind of discrimination squirrels are subjected to by this dog-loving society we live in.

Read the entire story here, if you have the stomach for it.

Last time I looked, 98 people liked it.
