Texas man sought in frozen-armadillo attack
October 22, 2011 | 11:13 am 147Dallas police are searching for a man who allegedly used a frozen armadillo to attack a woman who had been trying to buy the critter.
Investigators told Fox 4 News-Dallas Fort Worth that the fight started in an apartment parking lot Sept. 29 when the suspect was selling the carcass to the alleged victim, who planned to eat it.
The pair were haggling over the price when police said the man hurled the armadillo at the 57-year-old woman twice. The woman was struck in her leg and chest, and suffered bruises, police said.
So far, investigators have been unable to track down the suspect, who they said could face assault charges.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas law prohibits the sale of live armadillos, but some Texans still savor the meat. Some developed a taste for armadillo during the Great Depression of the 1930s, when it was known as “Hoover Hog” and “poor man’s pork.”
LolR24, i'm just paying a tribute to those poor fuzzy fusspots!
They are so bizarre! I feel compassion for them, i wouldn't want to be in their position. However, they are creatures that need to live and to feel pleasure like all the creatures of this planet.
I misheard. I thought he was selling an arm-sized dildo.
R27, below there is a female armadillo for you
Armadillos, aside from looking a little bit like crazy reptilian mammals, are available year-round, fairly low on the food chain, and legal to hunt everywhere. They range from the lower half of the U.S. into South America, so if you live anywhere near there, there's probably an armadillo into your backyard. And, yes, armadillos are eaten throughout their range.
