Vendors are selling exotic African "bush meat" at small underground markets in Toronto and Montreal. Meat from bats, rats and other small mammals is the most common, but as much as 30 percent of the meat sold can be primate.

I would never ever eat meat of an endangered animal, because it would be a crime against nature. The gorilla populations in small pockets of Africa are extremely endangered due poaching, and so are the chimps. Lion is one of the bush meat, and they are getting dangerously close to being endangered or they really are already. Bush meat can be compared to whale meat, and Japan says it is whaling for scientific purposes and yet the shops are pushing whale meat at reduced price, but the people do don't want to eat it.
In Far East they eat dogs and cats, boiled alive. that i another crime against animals. And it ort of fits to be brought into the conversation on bush meat.
It seems that the whole world has gone mad during and after the latest economic crisis. Those who have money want to experiment on weird food, but they should also be in charge and take care of everything so that there will be no black market. And yet it would be wrong.
Bush meat is not needed, we have enough meat sources near by. By sensible cattle breeding and farming we need not go hungry, and we should conserve all the old, endemic bovines for the future. That has happened with the Angus, the Scottish longhaired and tough breed.
Bush meat is punishable, criminal to the extreme.

Signed and noted. TY, Cher. Unbelievable, it just makes no sense. The idea of eating beef or pork is one thing. But, eating entirely unknown meat is even sicker. Then there is all that bacteria growing on it before you bought it and while it is in your suitcase on the way to Canada. Makes me want to go throw up! So may things wrong with this....

I find it hard to believe that anyone who is not on the verge of starving to death would even consider eating bush meat! Apart from the disgustingly cruel means of catching these small wild animals, who on earth would want to eat a tiny bat or a hand of a gorilla? Surely its not normal? Humans must wake up and protect what we have.

When we talk of BUSHMEAT, most of the people think that only the LOCAL people are involved!!!
i.e. they understand that an African buyer goes to the LOCAL market to buy GORILLA, CHIMPANZEE, & other PRIMATE Meat!!!!

BUT the real problem is that these PRIMATES are sold to UK, France, USA, Canada, far East Asia....

it is a BILLION $ TRAFFIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS USUAL: MONEY GREED IS THE REAL ENEMY TO WILDLIFE!!!!!!!!!

Actually BUSHMEAT consumption rg
