Rat Meat: In just about every country around the globe there are people eating Rat corpses for pleasure or survival necessity.
West Virginia, USA & Mexico have “Rat Stew”, “Caldo de Rata” there is also Rat Jerky.
The USA citizen in the cooking photo especially enjoys eating Rat testicles.
In Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Laos, China, Cambodia, etc, etc, Rats can sometimes be seen on restaurant menus.
Some people in Australia, New Zealand, Polynesia, Africa, South, Central & North America, and Europe enjoy eating Rats.
Rats from the forested wild, near wineries or grain farms, are preferred to sewer Rats, graveyard Rats & garbage dump Rats.
Buying live Rats or Rat corpses in open markets is risky because one never knows where the Rats lived and what they actually fed on.
Rats like people can survive on eating just about anything & everything.
There is a better way, a kinder way, a healthier way.

And I mean…Yes, the whole thing is absolutely weird and disturbing, and no, it doesn’t just apply to the rats.
This affects all sentient animals.
Is severing a pig’s leg more painful than severing a rat?
If I see the infliction of pain as negative and accordingly try to avoid it, then it is consistent to do this to all living beings with pain perception.
It then makes no difference whether these creatures are humans, rats, dogs, or cattle.
In view of the masses of animal products consumed in Germany, we do not need any sharp criticism of “THE other” food cultures, the so-called exotic ones.
