|Raccoons for sale as food, Chinese market, Temple City, California, Los Angeles, Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates|
Metro Supermarket located at 4819 Temple City Boulevard, Temple City, CA 91780 (626) 872-6955 is selling dead raccoons in a bag for $54 or $9.99/pound. They have been selling it for years they state. Authorities trying to figure out if it's legal. It might be legal if the source is legal. From a common sense point of view raccoon is the last meat you should eat. Every raccoon we've taken into rescue has had round worms which can be fatal to humans. You can't destroy it by just cooking it. They are also a Rabies Vector Species. This means they are more likely to have rabies though not all have rabies. Our main rabies vector animal here in LA is bats.
Supposedly raccoons are a "delicacy" in China which is odd as they are not native to Chine and have no raccoons there. I think some guy just told people it cures impotence or something to make money off gullible people. Turns out raccoon dogs which are not raccoons are native to Asia. They are called tanookis. Maybe they think they are raccoon dogs which we don't have here. Here is the original video from Christina Dow. In the video you see what looks like some large animals entire paw wrapped up. Here is the website for the market in English. http://metrosupermarket.net/en/

Raccoon meat is legal to sell if it's legally procured and presented. This company sells raccoon meat. The small size one is a juvie raccoon. They should have USDA stamps. I think they sell them whole as there is no butcher who wants to dress them, i.e. skin, gut, cut up...
Here is the bar code from the package 230500 754350. The "2" means it's meat that was weighed and wrapped in the store. The "5435" is the price. The "0" verifies the price. Still trying to figure out the "30500." That should be the type of meat.
