Tiger Meat Raw Sandwiches???

I personally had never heard of this before growing up on the eastern side of the state, but the more I talk to people in the west, I feel like a good share of people have tried this delicacy.  Yep, I guess "Raw Meat Sandwiches," is a thing now.  Especially this time of year at holiday parties in western North Dakota.

Tiger Meat is also readily available in North Dakota.

There are numerous reasons you shouldn't eat raw meat.

Just in case you need a refresher course, here's why health officials say you should avoid this risky activity at your holiday get-togethers this year.  It carries significant health risks, such as contracting Salmonella and E. coli.  Ground beef should always be cooked to at least 160 degrees.

Now, I know what some of you risk-takers are saying.  What about sushi?

How do they get away with it?  Well, we've all heard the story about people being filled with worms and other parasites who eat a lot of sushi.  Pretty sure, worms would be possible with raw hamburgers.  Can you say tapeworms?  YUCK!  Just sayin', I know somebody who had "pinworms" once, and it was not a fun experience.

That's a HARD PASS for me on Cannibal Sandwiches, pass me the lefsa instead!
