Point taken....in the US, various pig & chicken parts not eaten elsewhere seem to be Southern delicacies......that's what I was commenting on.

Although - back to the OP - you are braver than I for trying them!

What is the texture of a pig's ear? Is the mouthfeel like octopus (what I would imagine) or just ham?

DS, you are far too picky. "Vermin" are rats or mice, which probably someone somewhere eats. Squirrels are just pests. Take care of their peskiness by eating them.

(I've never had the opportunity to try squirrel, though.)

We lived in Knoxville, TN (loved it!) for 5 years before we moved home to Texas. On the local news once, there was a story about a young boy with terrible food allergies. He was allergic to nearly every kind of meat or fish - except for salmon and squirrel meat. There wasn't a squirrel safe in Knoxville for months. The family thanked everyone, but their freezer was overflowing. They couldn't take any more donations for a long time.
