So, I am sitting here watching the hunting channel, and these people are shooting otriches with crossbows. I had no clue people hunt these things. I wonder what they taste like. I just think it's weird.....


Just felt like throwing that out there.

I understand that Dick Cheney's friend tastes like chicken.

I just saw Ostrich hunting on tv too. Was it a girl who shot the ostrich? I have actually had ostrich, but its been awhile, it didn't taste bad though...

Ostrich is pretty good eating. The cool thing about those birds is that almost every part of the animal has a use, unlike a lot of things killed for food.

Ya! They were in a hut that looked like a rock. I just found it way creepy. Go study for your trig test and get off the forum or I'll kill you. Also, wakeskating tomorrow.

Never had Ostrich but have tried Emu which was good, would think Ostrich might taste the same.

My father raised Ostriches, Emus ans Rheas for 15 years. Ostrich tastes kinda like veal.

Thay have to be the dumbest animals on the planet. We've had to shoot a few. They were ones that escape from their pen and got too far to out to retrieve and we getting too close to major highways. When my dad moved to Africa we gave the remaining birds to an animal preserve.

They probably just bought it then shot it.

Ostriches are pretty stupid though. Their brain is the size of a walnut, which is pretty bad considering the size of the animal.

A friend of mine in Minnesota raises Emus. There's another animal with lots of uses!
