This might not be a typical topic for this forum, but I thought I would run it by you survival experts. I watch a show on History Channel where some guy is a trapper up in some cold place and is surviving mostly on animals he catches. In one episode, he is low on food and catches a raccoon, that he keeps for the fur, but does not eat it due to some kind of worm it might have, but he thinks nothing of eating the muskrats and beaver he traps. This guy lives out of a teepee and looks cold, wet and hungry. Is cooking up a raccoon really that dangerous? I assumed in a survival situation, any mammal if cooked up properly, would be safe to eat to at least get your belly full so you can function. I am aware a lot of this is just TV drama, but would be interested to know if anyone with real survival training would eat a raccoon if there was nothing else around.
