A student in rural Ohio served up guinea pig and rabbit to his classmates in a high school living skills program.

"The student-whose name was not released-described what he did in terms of harvesting meat to fix a dish for classmates, Gage said.
The principal described the boy as an active hunter. The Ledgemont district covers the rural communities of Montville and Thompson townships, where killing - and then eating - wild game is fairly common.
The hunt, however, usually doesn't take place at Pet Supplies Plus."

Authorities are considering bringing charges of animal cruelty against the boy, whose teacher allowed him to display the furry carcasses to classmates, skin the animals , and pass around samples of the cooked meat.

Cuy asado (roast guinea pig) is a holiday staple (much like our turkey}in Ecuador and Peru. Guinea pigs are raised to be eaten in all of Andean South America. Rabbits are good eatin' almost everywhere. So what's the big deal?
