RACCOONS IN THE … MEALS?!

Raccoon in a Tuxedo
Your maître d’ … or dinner.

A wholesaler of exotic meats was arrested for distributing such rare delicacies as deer, turtle, and raccoon to an assortment of restaurants in Chicago, primarily in the Chinatown district.  Well, I’m sure you’ve heard the jokes about Chinese food before.  It turns out they’re occasionally true.

Note that there are no statutes that say raccoon meat–or other wild game–can’t be served at restaurants.  The issue is that the wholesaler was obtaining his supplies illegally from nearby Indiana.  States get very uptight about things once you cross a border.  Although I am curious if the Chinese restaurants were actually listing “raccoon” as an ingredient anywhere on their menus.
