I gots Procyon lotor in my Belly!

Yesterday I attended the 74th Louisiana Shrimp and Petroleum Festival in Morgan City, Louisiana.

One food booth had the tempting offer of “Cajun Fried Coon”. How could I resist. It came on a stick, as do all main courses in south Louisiana outside of New Orleans. Attached to the stick was a raccoon leg, mostly skinned, and deep fried, complete with fried furry paw and a handsome set of tiny toenails. It was a little overcooked, and did not taste at all like chicken. I seemed to be the only one eating this particular entree.

Way too many raccoons! And much better for the environment than eating Manatees! [hard to get them on a stick anyway!]
