Raccoon -- It's What's For Dinner!

A grocery store in Gadsden, SC, has been ordered to quit selling raccoon meat.

...yeah.  I didn't know how to react to that sentence, either.

Department of Health and Environmental Control spokesman Thom Berry said DHEC officers found bags of chilled raccoon meat in a cooler at the Lucky Seven #2 store in Gadsden.  Berry says that raccoon meat is not certified by state and federal meat inspectors as being safe for humans (I know a few people who would disagree with that.  Hell, the 1931 edition of Joy Of Cooking had a raccoon meat recipe in it.  Jeff Beringer, a resource biologist with the Missouri Department of Conservation, said in 2009, "Raccoon meat is some of the healthiest meat you can eat.").  They told them to get rid of it, but found more on a second trip.  So they ordered it destroyed and are considering legal action against the store.

Huh?  My opinion?  Let me get my brain kickstarted, and I'll get back to you later.

I once had raccoon meat at a cookout. It was okay. I prefer deer meat though.

Veddy interesting. I've never tried it but if the opportunity came up, I'd have to give it a taste. Guess I can't get it from that store though.
