That’s what I was wondering too, WHO eats armadillo meat? Sounds like a nasty illness too.
I remember being told about this back when I was a kid, mumblety mumble years ago.
I was going to ask if journalists fact checked anymore, but that question is so stupid I smacked my own forehead.
BTW, armadillo is good eats. Not nearly as greasy as 'possum.
My grandkids found one on my property not too long ago.
I remember those things from back when we lived in Louisiana. They tear up your lawn at night and seem to be attracted to highways

While it's the sort of thing I'd be perfectly happy seeing cut from the fedguv's budget, the National Hansen's Disease Museum
in Carville, LA is actually a fascinating place. Up until the 50's the NHS quarantined leprosy patients in a handful of such places around the country. When the disease finally became treatable on an outpatient basis (largely as a result of research using armadillos) the internees were given the option of leaving or, for those who had never lived or worked in the outside world and/or whose families had abandoned them, they were given the option of remaining at Carville. If I'm not mistaken, there are still a handful of Hansen's patients living there on the compound that houses the museum and is administered by the LA National Guard.

If there is an eager market for armadillo all the while a concern over the safety of the meat, why not start an armadillo farm? Sounds like a unique business opportunity to me.
