The headline of this ABC News Australia story just about says it all: "Cat stew legal, may not be safe." Apparently someone in Australia submitted a recipe for cat stew in a local "bush food" cooking competition, and it's causing a bit of an uproar. The article might seem to suggest that eating cats is dangerous, but as one expert notes, it is not much different than eating any other wild animal. Is eating cat legal in your country?

Be sure to click on the audio link ("It's a nice sweet meat, not gamey like a rabbit") to get the full report. Thanks to members of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting about this story.
