I predicted that as time gets tough and tougher would begin to eat stuff they would not normally eat, but when persons gets desperate anything can happen. Now we have reports of persons have begun to eat mongoose as part of their daily diets.
There is no oxtail, no pork chops, no chicken back, instead these have been replaced with crocodile and now mongoose.
It’s clear that the direction the Portia Simpson Miller is leading the country in have people resorting to desperate means simply to stay alive. Never before in our history have Jamaicans eaten these animals and really is a sign of the time.
I shudder for my dogs now as they could not become the next target of desperate and hungry Jamaicans
Mongoose. Now on the plate on many Jamaicans.
In Trinidad they(the Indians) eat a rodent called a manicou pictured below.
