Maybe many of you will say "Yaks"on my title. But please read first the whole content before judging me. When I was a kid, I woke up one afternoon and I was very hungry. I went to the kitchen to look for food. I found a bowl of adobo in the dining table covered by a plate. I tasted it and it was really delicious. So I ate it together with rice. When I finished eating, my mom went to the kitchen and she was amazed upon seeing the the adobo in the bowl almost gone. I told her I ate it. She was laughing and told me it was an adobo of the meat of a wild monkey. So that's my story. Have you eaten meat of any wild animal?

@antonbunot dog meat is a big no,no, for me because the meat itself contains rabies and it's harmful to our body.

@skysnap we do need to be careful with mushrooms like a lot of foods, even green potatoes can be scary. You never know where the little squirt has gone.

It was legal during those times when my father usually hunt wild animals in the forest near our land. According to my dad monkeys are good to eat.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX you know, my dad's favorite pastime during those old times was to hunt wild animals. He was very happy to catch a wild one. Just a sort of a hobby and since our land was near the forest, it was easy for him to hunt there. Now, it's not allowed due to wild life preservation.

Many years ago my husband and I travelled through Mexico with a guided tour. Once, in a restaurant, a dish with monkey meat was on the menu. Some members of our (German) group ordered it. My husband and I couldn't do it. We were repelled. I can't explain it rationally.

@Macarrosel I wouldn't underwrite that. Germany has more than 80 million inhabitants. From these I've witnessed about eight persons eating monkey meat. Talking about Germans in general is widely exaggerated!!

Some Filipinos really eat monkey meat, my grand uncle who migrated to Davao, Southern Philippines hunted monkeys during the the 50s and 60s when wildlife was abundant, he did not eat it but gave it to the natives. My wife is from Mindanao so I have eaten wild boar and deer. I don't support this now cause I'm pro conservation

@Macarrosel I am sure you know about those bamboo beetles. I mean those small bamboos. Before they become beetles they live and grow inside those bamboos looking like large worms . . . I ate them when I was young . . we call it pritong bater in Ilocos.

During those old times, my dad used to hunt wild animals in the forest near our land as sort of a hobby or past time and it was legal that time. He hunted wild pigs, Deere, and monkeys. So my mom cooked it and put it in the table for those who wanted to eat in our family. My elder sister and brother didn't eat for they knew it's a monkey. But since I didn't know, I ate them all and I find it delicious. . Maybe if I knew it's a monkey I would hesitate to eat it. But you know kids, when they taste delicious food they eat it without asking what it is. I was just a kid that time.
