Suburban Los Angeles Food Market Sells Dead Raccoons as Meat [Video]
Most people are probably content with buying their meat in shrink wrapped packages already cut up and ready to be cooked.
It's not likely that sales for whole wild animals recently killed and stuffed in a bag would be high on the list, however.
Until recently, Metro Supermarket in Temple City, Calif., near Los Angeles was reportedly selling dead raccoons stuffed in plastic bags for $9.99 a pound, KCBS-TV reported.
A local woman saw that and notified the authorities.
There's no way the health department would allow the sale of dead animals in plastic bags, even with the store owners' claim it's a traditional delicacy. Plus, it's unlikely that raccoon meat -- at least in Los Angeles -- is in high demand.
