Episode 34: How to kill a squirrel (and eat it)

Every culture has different foods that are socially acceptable to eat.  Thus, growing up in England, Squirrel was never part of my diet.  But for John Ny Vang, who is from Laos but has lived in Minnesota for the last 30 years, Squirrel is just like any other meat.  A few weeks ago, he took me out on a hunting expedition to shoot the little guys.  Squirrels were shot, and squirrels were eaten… and they were delicious!  Believe it or not, I went back for seconds and thirds.
