True story – Roy P. Mackal of the Chicago Institute investigated a pygmy tribe in the African Congo that had found a massive animal dying in the swampy jungle and so, like all easily-procured bush-meat, they chopped it up, brought it home and the entire village ate it. Within 24 hours the village was dying as everyone who ate it came down with food poisoning similar to Cholera.
When the Red Cross asked what they had eaten, they couldn’t say. So they brought in picture books…
…this what they all insisted they had eaten:
If you took away from this that there could possibly be a living Brontosaurus in the Congo, you’re a moron!
The moral of the story is don’t eat dead or dying shit you happen upon!
