Animals I Want To Eat

bullet Bear - I'm told it's available in the Pacific Northwest, but tastes nasty.
bullet Chukar - I had to look this one up in the dictionary. "The Chukar, Alectoris chukar, is a gamebird in the pheasant family Phasianidae".
bullet Dog - Supposedly commonly eaten in Asian countries.
bullet Elephant - Probably unlikely to happen in my lifetime, but who knows.
bullet Groundhog - I know there are groundhogs in the US, but never seen it on a menu anywhere.
bullet Horse - Friends from Belgium tell me it is a very tasty meat, and commonly eaten in Europe.
bullet Peacock - A friend from India told me wild peacocks are the tastiest bird to eat.  My husband and I actually looked into raising them in our backyard, but it turns out they're probably too noisy. Bummer.
bullet Platypus - According to news articles, platypus meat is sold in New Guinea marketplaces. That would be so cool! Then I'd have eaten eutherians, metatherians, and prototherians!
bullet Water buffalo - I've been told that McDonalds in India serves water buffalo burgers.
bullet Saber-toothed tiger - Maybe someday they'll resurrect enough DNA to clone and raise them!
