gaspode: This kind of thing pisses me off. People should see what they are eating and understand it. Anyone who find sa chicken foot repulsive should be a vegan or some shiat.

That said, chicken breast is expensive, feet are very cheap, and meat handling is important as people can die. It says pretty bad things about the standards in this shop, and would make me question everything packed there.. is it what it says it is, is the weight right, is the kind of dumbass who puts that in there following hygeine rules?


This. Everyone is jumping straight to the OMG STUPID biatch DONT KNOW FOOD IS ANIMALS. but something thats not supposed to be in the package being in the package speaks to lazy packaging standards. Theyve farked up this what else have they farked up? yeah wah who cares its a foot. But other worse things could have ended up in there too that could kill someone.

sendtodave: Bravo Two: I submit that it's not the killing that is enjoyed, that's the price of the trip and is accepted/endured like the muscle ache after the gym. The enjoyment comes from being out in nature, testing your wits as a predator in an unfamiliar environment, and generally enjoying a radically different experience than the day to day.

Then why not take a camera instead of a gun?

You can even put a little red crosshair in the middle of the lens to prove to everyone how you could have bagged that buck.

I was in line at a fast food joint talking with a friend about a upcoming wild boar hunt I was invited to when the lady in front of me turned with a disgusted look on her face and said something along the line of "hunting is barbarous and should be outlawed", I pointed to the burgers on her tray and replied "at least I have the guts to face my prey, I don't send assassins after it"

Most states consider wild hogs to be kill on site, generally don't even need a hunting license.

Though, you stated in another post you're inside city limits, so there might be some discharging of firearms problems.   Forget about a bow; get a decent crossbow.  You don't want to piss one of those things off.

Might also want to talk to the city of about what your legal options are, if they can be considered a nuisance or danger to your family.  A lot of places will get you a bit more leeway for dealing with dangerous or destructive wild animals if you ask.

Max Awesome: uttertosh: Max Awesome: In other words - yes, chicken have feet, but they shiat all over their feet. I don't want their shiat-soaked feet on my dinner plate, thanks.

oh, shut your stawman up.

Producers of battery farmed animals know that the whole animal was covered in shiat, during the slaughter there was shiat everywhere, and unavoidably, all over the meat - they *gasp* WASH everything before it gets sent out. Seriously.

Really? You actually trust meat processors to properly sterilize the chicken appendages that spend their entire lives marinating in shiat?

Enjoy your shiat-soaked chicken toes, sucker.


Perhaps they could properly sterilize them if they intended to package them... but a foot that still has nails and skin somehow making it through the process for skinless boneless breasts?  That doesn't inspire confidence at all.  It would have to skip most of those steps, so why would any cleaning procedures be any more reliable?
Multiple things have to go wrong and no system or person noticed at the company or the store.  The packages likely have other inaccuracies, and that's bad regardless of whether it is still 'food'.  Restaurants end up in articles all the time for mislabeled foods that are still edible food - misidentified fish, beef or pork where it shouldn't be, food that isn't kosher, etc.
Also the reality just is that most of their customers won't want that, whether they are grossed out or not.  If they're buying breasts they probably want breasts - the feet are cheaper for a reason, and not nearly so common a purchase here.

I have no issue with chicken feet (never had 'em, but they sound like glorified wings, and I like me some wings), but if something that shouldn't be in the package is in the package, and that package is  meat...uh, yeah, time to let someone know. It's kind of important that proper food safety standards are maintained, unless food poisoning sounds fun to you.

sendtodave: JesseL: Great Porn Dragon: Assuming those are actual feral pigs and not javelina, I'm kind of surprised your state DFW hasn't up and classified them formally as varmints allowing no-limit no-tag hunting all year (they ARE legally classified as varmints here, and hunters not only don't need tags but are actively encouraged to kill as many as they can); hell, there's states that are actually talking about offering bounties for the things because they're so invasive and damaging to the local flora and fauna.

(If those ARE javelina as opposed to actual feral pigs, though, I can understand why there's a formal season and such.)

And yes, get a bow (or a crossbow if you're used to gun type things already). :D

They are javelina. Considering how many there are and what a nuisance they are though, it's annoying how stingy they are with tags and the season length. I had to put up an electric fence just to keep them out of the garden and the chicken run.

Not to mention the fact that they've gotten fairly aggressive and have very little fear of people.

So, the problem is nature encroaching on your garden plot, and you aren't allowed to properly control it?


I've got it under control now, but I'm not allowed to do the natural thing which would be to kill and eat the little farkers.

In Colombia they make a caldo(broth) with the feet, head, liver, gizzard, and heart.  It is generally an appetizer but you can order a large bowl as a meal.  The bowl comes with a boiled egg floating in it.  I imagine it is a favorite of Dr. Lecters.

And it is delicious.

fark, the Chinese would gnaw on those things like they were candy.  Chicken's foot soup is pretty farking tasty, but I usually left the foot alone unless I was hungover.

Pickled goose foot was a little harder to get used to, since it was raw and had been pickled, so the skin was all soft and swollen.  And you were supposed to let it all dissolve in your mouth and then spit out the bones.  I managed it, but it wasn't one of my favorites.

ZeroCorpse: Sid_6.7: On the one hand, she's a dumb b*tch.

OTOH, if I were a manager, I'd be concerned about what else the workers aren't paying attention to if a chicken foot ended up in a pack of breasts.

That stuff is prepacked and shipped to stores. A machine probably placed the food in the package, and another machine probably wrapped it.


Did a machine put it on the shelf? I would expect employees to at least glance at a row of packages to make sure it looks good before leaving it for customers.

I somewhat seriously said years ago that there ought to be a rule you're not allowed to eat any animal you haven't killed one of.  So, for example, in order to be allowed to eat beef, you must have once in your life killed a cow.

sendtodave: Psycoholic_Slag: poot_rootbeer: davidphogan: If hunting is cruel what the fark is factory farming?

May I argue that in one of those practices, the primary goal is recreation, and in the other the primary goal is maximizing efficiency in providing people their sustenance?

I'm not getting it.  Are you suggesting that shooting this in it's natural environment is cruel:
[www.vallescaldera.gov image 450x268]

But raising these in this environment and running them through a mass producing slaughter house is not cruel?
[youthvoices.net image 800x533]
Please clarify.

Well, the wild turkey there exists in nature.  The mass produced chickens, on the other hand, exist only because we grow them for food.

So, yeah, I'd say that shooting the wild turkey would be a shame, whereas killing a feed lot chicken would be a mercy.


On the off chance that you're not trolling, that is some messed up reasoning there my friend.
Let's walk through this and see if it plays out:

I'm hungry.  I go out and hunt down a mature wild turkey that has lived a fine life eating natural food and making baby turkeys.  He's dead before he hears the gunshot.  My family eats a nice lean organic bird that would have been killed in a much more violent manner by predators if I hadn't shot it.

Your hungry.  You go to the store and buy a packaged turkey that was hatched in an incubator and then after a couple of days has it's upper beak cut off so it can only eat prepared food pellets laced with antibiotics.  It then spends it's life in a windowless room packed with 10,000 other turkeys where bright lights shine 24/7 and it's denied it's natural instinct to roost and thus sleep. Your family eats an antibiotic laced freak of nature that lived a miserable and pathetic short life and wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for nancys like you who lack the skills to be self sufficient.

Shame on me for killing that wild turkey.
Kudos to you for buying that farm raised turkey.
