OK, who's telling Davey Crockett about his coon skin hat ?
Who's telling those who wear leather hats from cows, buffalo, etc. ?
Who's telling women wearing rabbit coats, etc. ?
Who's telling kids, that belt they are wearing around their waist ?
Who's telling them about the alligator boots ? Snake boots ?
Where do you draw the line ? Chinese love to eat dogs, cats, pigeons, rats, eel and numerous other sea fish varieties including octopus.

OTOH, the patients were country, mostly mountain folk -- with a majority vets, including a couple who had been SF.
When discussion got to eating meat, somehow, we morphed from "Deer meat doesn't have much fat" to other game, to what some of us (myself included) had eaten around the world. :danceban:
The reaction of the dietitian and trainees was priceless. :rolleyes:
Horse meat in France got even a bigger reaction than cats, dogs, rats, bugs, etc. :rolleyes:
Some of the student actually left the room, rather green tinged.
Good point. And I really don't want to hear from PETA either. Ooogles of animals have died in their care. The LSM just doesn't report it.

Swiss say no to animal lawyers
Swiss voters have soundly rejected a plan to appoint special lawyers for animals that are abused by humans. Results in yesterday's referendum showed that 70.5 per cent of voters cast their ballot against the proposal. Switzerland already has among the world's strictest rules when it comes to caring for pets and farm animals.
Opponents of the proposal, including key farmers' groups and the government, had argued that existing laws are sufficient and appointing special lawyers to act on behalf of animals would be unnecessarily expensive for taxpayers.
At least these Swiss Europeans are showing a little bit of sanity. Well, most of them.
They are gutted and skinned before cooking. Most skins are just thrown away because they are so small, but I have seen poorer people make blankets out of a bunch of them.
