Great Apes For Food
This article was interesting. When I got halfway, I got disgusted at the many ways you can cook a gorilla. But it makes sense to eat bushmeat when there's so little other protein available. It amazes me to find out that it costs more to buy bushmeat than to buy regular pork or beef. This is fascinating because they don't value beef or pork like we do. They value other meats because of it's potency. It's interesting to find out that the gorilla meat can be used to cure backaches, help with pregnancy, and give men strength. All these uses hold traditional values that the African people have. I guess everyone has their preferences. Personally, I don't think I'll be eating any gorilla hands or feet anytime soon. I know that for sure.
