You would not believe what they eat in America for a long time, like squirrels and racoons . In south and in Appalachia, people saviour them for centuries and beyond, being an ancient Native American tradition and spread in many rural areas among white folks. Of course nutra, a rodent in the bayous of Louisiana is a delicacy. Snake and especially you know alligator meat is common practice. Ostrich is also being promoted!
Lion, being a threatened species.... not sure about it. Lions should be reproduced for the reintroduction to their native lands. Efforts should be oriented this way. One day, which is very unlikely, when lions become numerous, like deers, then we can reevaluate the idea!
Until then mix some roaches and crickets with high protein content to your pasta and salad. You can be sure that they will not disappear into the oblivion!
