Quite a while back, I was watching on Nat Geo the different eating habits of the world. Well, this was shocking to say the least. It showed a man who had used an animal hook/circle to catch a cat. There was a pot of boiling water and it showed him throwing the cat into the boiling water ALIVE. I was struck dumb. My husband said, we're not watching that, knowing how I am about animals. Since then, I have seen people eat brains of animals, testicles. You name it, they eat odd body parts of different animals. I asked myself why. I still do not know. If they grow pigs, chickens, and/or cows, why not run down to the store and grab up some beef or chicken.Or if you live on a farm, why not raise more pigs, chickens or something. Why eat snake or some strange part of an animal. I knew they ate cats and dogs in Vietnam. My first husband did his tour of duty in that useless war and knew they ate cats and dogs. But, wait, he said he once saw an elderly Vietamese man scale a palm tree to eat baby mice whole and uncooked. Sad, but true. I do not understand this behavior at all.
