Woman allegedly beaten with frozen armadillo

Dallas authorities are currently looking for a man likely facing assault charges for hurling a frozen armadillo at a 57-yr-old woman.

Reportedly, the woman had met the man to purchase the armadillo, which she intended to eat.

When the transaction resulted in a fight over its price, he struck her with the animal in the leg and the chest, leaving bruises about her body.

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, state law prohibits the sale of live armadillos, however, there are still a few Texans that are after their meat.

“…people who eat armadillo meat will find that thorough cooking should make the meat noninfectious (of mycobacterial leprosy). However, the greatest hazard of being infected (if any) may be encountered during cleaning and dressing of the animals.

….Eating armadillos is not widespread in Texas today, although it has been popular among south-of-the-border residents for more than a hundred years. Many Texans, especially during the depression years of the 1930s, dined on the “Hoover Hog,” referring to the armadillo as ‘poor man’s pork’.”
