    Is that even legal here? What a shame. I have to giggle though, that's just what they deserve - eating guinea pigs! How can people eat what we love & keep in our homes as part of our family!!!

    I personally would never eat guinea pigs, but it is a part of South American culture. I can't deny that I gave a bit of an evil laugh when I read that the meat made people sick, but I try to not judge -- after all, cows are sacred in India, and they view eating beef the same way as we view eating guinea pigs.

    The ones they eat aren't the family pets and not kept in homes. I guess when people here get it from spinach or cantaloupes, etc, its what they get too? That's a cheap and easily bred meat in those countries that eat them. Anyone that eats meat at all has no right really to whine about what kind of meat is eaten in other countries. Many countries eat horse, dogs, snakes, bugs, etc. Remember to a horse lover, those that eat horses are horrible, while in other countries for religious reasons normal meat(pork) is not eaten. I do believe some restaurants are serving it here too.

    [MENTION=27327]lunarminx[/MENTION] - you are 100% correct. Other countries do what they must to survive off what their culture offers. I still giggled because I have been a vegetarian for 24yrs. Simply because I just never liked meat even as a child.
