Skid Row Residents Dine on the Wild Side Thanks to Meaty Donation
Recipients of meals at Skid Row's Union Rescue Mission has some unusual options for dinner last night thanks to a large donation, according to LA Now. 250 pounds of game meat, including elk, deer, antelope, bear, sheep, and wild pig, was donated by The Sportsman Channel as part of a national initiative called "Hunt. Fish. Feed."
The game meat was served as tacos, which didn't give many at the Mission pause. "I want to go to the wild side," joked one man about his bear-meat taco. Many remarked that it didn't taste like anything other than a taco.
Some of the hunters who had shot and donated the meat were on hand to serve the meal, and one of them, Eric Welsh, has hopes " the event would change people's perceptions of hunters," including that people become aware that hunters "care about animals and don't want any meat to go to waste."
