From the What-The-Fuck? Department:
Raw cougar meat eaten by a deer hunter is the apparent source of Washington state’s first case of trichinosis since 2001, a health official says.
The hunter was hospitalized for a time after eating the uncooked meat in October but has since recovered, Klickitat County Health Director Kevin Barry told the Yakima Herald-Republic.
Dollars to doughnuts the raw meat this tragically macho hunter ate was the cougar’s heart. What a douchebag.
Anyway, whatever the circumstances, here’s a suggestion for the next time this guy bags a cougar:
1 pound cougar steak
3 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 teaspoon bacon fat
Marinate steaks for 2-3 hours in your favorite meat marinate. Dry steaks and flour both sides of meat. Fry in skillet with oil and bacon fat over medium heat until cooked.
