I assume you come to SHTFblog for the TEOTWAWKI unusual. Unorthodox thinking and entertainment for survival samurais (note abandoned “survival ninja” terminology). While material on how to store beans and bullets for 3 lifetimes is useful, writing it bores the living shit right out of me. I’ll read the information when I’m looking for it, but otherwise – entertain me, and if there’s a little information in that entertainment – all the better.
I’ve posted before on eating mice or rats when the chips are down, most notably my trap design for catching good eats. This recent news article has spurred me to write again on the beauty and sweetness of vermin treats.
Now it appears the Indian government is at least reading and following SHTFblog‘s wisdom (lol). Seriously, scope it: Vijay Prakash, secretary of the state’s welfare department (India) said eating rodents “will help in mitigating the global food crisis. We are sure that it will work wonders. It will save half our grain, and will also reduce villagers’ dependence on food stock.”
His new plan promotes rat munching in homes, streets, restaurants and five-star hotels. Yum! “Rat meat will make up nutrition deficiencies among villagers, since rats are a major source of protein,” he said.
So there you have it. Get a Havahart trap, build my mouse trap bucket, and you’ll secure enough regular sources of fresh protein come TEOTWAWKI that you’ll be able to utilize your TEOTWAWKI grill selling meat for silver coins post-doomsday.
Now if that isn’t useful information, I don’t know what is!

BTW: People in Thailand loooove rat meat. Check the article right here. “It’s better than chicken,” one customer said.
