    Well I don't feel so bad then. It made me wonder how many people even know what a skinned cat even looks like to make the comprasion. It was funny that about every third booth was selling trapped coon a week before turkey day. Well it must be trapping season in Missouri.

    Cat is a lot more greasy than coon, kind of like that nasty dark back meat on a baked chicken....more greasy, even than bear.

    But you're wasting your time if you're eating anything but muskrat. Sweet potato-stuff 'possum is some good eatin' every once in a while, of course, but for day-in, day-out culinary joy, nothing beats muskrat.

    Unless it's a 1 1/2" T-Bone or Rib Eye, grilled medium, that is.

    Just kidding about all that other stuff, too, though I ran across a recipe for coon-pfeffer once that didn't sound half bad. I used the same recipe for rabbit (hassenpfeffer).

    My guess is that the foot stayed on there because of game laws that had to do with proving that it was a coon carcass as oposed to anything (including, but not necessarily, felis domesticus) else.

    Is there such a thing as a real road kill cafe?
    Well the original Roadkill Cafe is up in Montana Roscoe or Lewistown if I recall. Though they do not actually serve up roadkill. They just have real catchy names for their dishes.

    We had a coon incident here just a couple of weeks ago coon killin anyone who eats coon know you don't eat it before "dinner" anyway, I have also heard that you should always leave a paw on to make sure that it's not a cat if sold or given to others

    Mike it is an area of older St. Louis where I grew up as a kid. It some what like the French Quarters of New Orleans. It is a mostly outdoor food market where farmers (more in the olden days) or others can pull their truck up to and rent a spot. Its the only spot that I know of that no matter what nationality you are, you can find what you are use to eating. Along with buying pets, live chickens and live turkeys. Produce is usually a third of the price of the supermarket. If you eat rabbit, goat or elk, well this is meat you can not get at the supermarket but you can get this meat at Soulard Farmers Market. You can also get knock off clotheing, purses and shoes. Its a +1 place to go if you are a visitor to St. Louis or live here. It was just this weekend that I seen so many raccoons being sold, that I asked questions.

    Coon really isn't that bad. Nor is cat or dog for that matter. Cat is is a little stringy, but done right, not bad.

    I really liked beaver. Now that was some good eatin'.
