Texas man sought in frozen-armadillo attack

Well Florida is certainly breathing a sigh of relief...


Dallas 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.

It is in Dallas. The desert is a long way away.

Don't eat armadillo, they carry leprosy.

We should have a forum where all states are represented...and then we compare how many stories are in each State Forum at the end of the year.

Would also help fellow Otters when they decide to relocate.

But it's treatable and might be worth the tasty meat.

That's a good one for that recent thread started by The Bus.
