Chow Cougar Tartare

Apparently it’s a good idea to cook cougar before you eat it.
Raw cougar meat, eaten by a deer hunter who found himself being stalked, 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.
“I’ve been told by everyone I know who has eaten cougar that it tastes pretty good,” Barry said.
Hm… I like wild game. It was a wild game restaurant that restored my then-vegetarian boyfriend back to full carnivore status. Are there any restaurants around here that serve cougar meat? I’ll have mine medium, of course.
