    Well, I just finished reading one of the threads about rats and people shooting their opinions about it but the closest thing I saw to someone eating it was when someone compared it to a pig? lol.

    Anyways, I didn't exactly eat rat, but I had a muskrat. Everyone calls them rats like, "Do you want 1 rat or 2?"
    You be the judge if it's close or not.
    I eat them once a year, it's like a country red-neck kind of get together of about 600 local men. People of all kinds come. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor.

    Anyways, enough chatter, here's the rat. It tastes pretty good. The outside is sometimes a little more tough than I'm used to, but then again, I usually eat well. It also has many bones. That's the biggest downside. It's almost a pain to eat. Personally, I like it and would eat it every week if it was served at dinner. No questions asked. But it's also not something I crave.

    The rats were served with Lake Erie yellow perch, fries, onion, rings and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember.

    Conclusion: I've ate it. It's been a week or two. Screw the media.

    Sorry if the image is too big. :/

    at my country, we usually eat them, better than chicken :)), these rats just eat rice and coconut, so their meat is safe and healthy

    Just the thought of eating a rat does not sit well with me.

    If you eat any factory processed food then you have eaten rat and plenty of spiders......possibly a few human digits too.

    There looks to be a lot more quality meat on that muskrat than the sandblasted....hips,tits and eyeballs that goes into most burger patties.

    That would be actually something that I would want to try. Looks pretty good... I have had frog legs once and surprisingly it was very tasty you know. You should try that sometime..

    Damn I wanna try aswell.
    I cant get how some people are grossed out by food they never tried.
    Every culture and country has different stuff they eat. But noone would eat something that truly tastes terrible.
    So why assume that about food you dont know.
    So narrowminded...

    Muskrat aint rat, but tastes pretty good -- prefer beaver or raccoon though! Nutria are ok -- used to trap a lot and we ate a lot of what we caught. Used to be a store south of Chicago called Czimers( I think) that sold wild meats, we would go there every week or 2 and order everything from Zebra to Lion.
    Wish I had got a bear last year -- now those are good eats!

    Doesn't look much different from the shit they serve in every "chicken shop" in the UK, except for the colour.

    I'm surprised that with the large nutria population in Louisiana its not a common dish here.

    I loved that episode of Dave Attell where they drove around and shot them all night.
