    Well, I suppose if they were so desperate that they`d try to smuggle them I suppose they can`t be THAT bad...

    Rat meat might actually taste pretty good, if it was well prepared.

    `The illegal trade in the meat of wild animals has been devastating animal populations for decades and experts fear the unrefrigerated meat is capable of carrying diseases such as foot-and-mouth, anthrax, the Ebola virus, TB and cholera. `

    lol "foot and mouth" disease

    The Daily Mail is known to be full of racist poo. Notice how the article is a sly dig at Africans.

    I wouldn`t imagine it`s true, or if it is I wouldn`t imagine that it`s destination was a restaurant..

    agree with samuelf the daily mail is known for racist crap really. amoung other `strong` views. i have no doubt that rats are a delicasy in ghanda..but then we are the home of jellied eels! :x

    i love rats as pets (you may have noticed) but im open minded to understand that countries do have their different dishes. although if its illegal over here, than the law should stay ofc. plus if someone came near my rats to eat them they would have to come through me first ;)

    Who the F**k submitted a daily mail article. The paper was pro-nazi up until the point the point the British government threatened them with closure.
    This is another thinly veiled racist article. Cane rat is more attractively known as the grass cutter and is a very sustainable west african delicacy.

    Would have been a tad more relevant if the article focused on illegal meat trade possibly..

    I love Ebola it would make a perfect weapon, there is no vaccine for it. It is considered the deadliest virus in the world {even better than smallpox}. so far there hasnt been any outbreaks here, but it does horrible things to you youre skin can split into holes and bleed horrificly. symptoms are internal bleeding,aching muscles headache,rash and youre eyes turn red and many more there is a story behind these rats and its not for fine dining. If you people are so naive that you dont realize that this is probably a cover story to keep panic from setting in then well, think why would they smuggle them for food no! that is ridiculous and you know it. This was probably a bio-attack, and their lucky they found it when they did.

    `So African diners could crunch into their bones and flesh.` - Yeah, that sentence alone pretty much tells you what kind of paper the Daily mail is...

    The Daily Mail hates everyone who isn`t white, middle-class and British... (And male) And then they have the audacity to claim they are being discriminated against.

    well you british folk have to realize that us americans have never heard of the daily mail. hey, come to think of it, i went on a trip to england for a week about a month ago and brought back a daily mail newspaper. i found it entertaing, more of a tabloid than a newspaper in my opinion

    I heard all the newspapers in the UK are biased anyway. I was told that, if I wanted unbiased news from there, I`d have to watch the TV news programming. Quite the opposite of the US, I do have to say. At least if you take USA Today and local newspapers out of the equation.

    Meh, I`ve seen worse. Then again, my dad`s from a country where they cook pigeon and serve it in restaurants, so I guess I`m a bit more open minded about these things.

    I read Daily Mail and I never noticed it was racist/biased. But then again, as as Lupine said, I am white, middle class and British...

    Really didnt think our news was that bad, I bet its no worse than the USA

    racist much?

    anyway whoever left the comment about the bio attack is either psychotic or paranoid. just because the media is nothing but a bunch of scare mongers doesn`t mean that we should consider everything that goes on as some kind of threat...
