Hanging Meat Causes Stir in South St. Louis County
Fox 2 Now (St. Louis) ^ | January 5, 2011 | Betsy Bruce

SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI-FOX2now.com) — Imagine looking out your back window and seeing duck carcasses hanging from a neighbor's house. That's been the case for a south St. Louis County neighborhood for nearly two weeks. It turns out what is common in some parts of the world is a violation of the county's health code.

A family from Turkey hung chunks of meat and poultry outside to cure or "season" on Christmas day according to neighbor Dan Wampler. "It's out in direct sunlight all day long and the squirrels and animals are getting into the food," he said Wednesday as he stood on the other side of the fence from the backyard.

Wampler said a neighbor's dog had become ill and thrown up pieces of poultry bone and raw meat while he kept his dog from eating another bone with decaying meat attached. Worried about the health of pets and children in the area, he contacted the St. Louis County Health Department but got no action until he contacted FOX 2 News. A call from the news room to the health department resulted in a health inspector checking on the complaint and asking the owners to remove the raw meat. They did remove the meat Wednesday afternoon.

Don't need to. I can just look out my back window and see duck carcasses hanging. Also sometimes pheasant, rabbit, geese, coyote, deer and, once, a black bear.

Is that supposed o tbe some kind of PROBLEM?

It’s a personal policy of mine to never display my meat in public.

Hey, you better be careful about hanging your meat out in public! You can get in big trouble unless it is after 2:00 AM and she is really drunk.

Some people are so far removed from reality, it’s downright scary. Poor little poochie threw up after eating raw meat? No wonder! It was too used to eating nice little nuggets made by cooking rotten offal, euthenized pets and chicken feathers into a slurry and forming it into nuggets so the real ingredients can’t be identified. Not THAT”S perfectly acceptable!

The practice of curing meat has been around a lot longer than those panty-waist pinkies have. Considering the times we’re living in, those people had better ask their neighbors for some lessons in survival. If the economy collapses they’ll be begging their neighbors for some of those hanging carcasses.

I once took a Greek bus tour from Salonika to Phillipi at the end of Lent and saw a number of skinned lambs hanging outside — for sale — at an isolated gas station. Country people there didn’t have close-by supermarkets.

Saw an interesting monument to Alexander the Great that day, too — a massive bronze sitting lion — in the middle of nowhere.

I immediately thought of the hanging pheasants in the James Clavell book "Shogun".

Same here in San Francisco, in Chinatown there are ducks, geese, chicken, and the occasional pig - they are great advertisements.

Well, I’m not averse to aging & hanging meat - we used to hang deer in the basement for a little to drain blood & such before it was skinned, but outside what stops maggot infestation on skinned meat?

Well bill....we don't have flies here in OK...much in the winter.

But that said, I generally don't like to hang deer...in a greater than 40 degree daytime weather...but if it's lower than that...I will hang meat for 3-4 days...if I can.

Can't always do that...because OK weather is 60 degrees today...30 tomorrow. But I've never worried about maggots....just spoiling.

Daytime highs in the Twenty-five degree Farenheit range takes care of maggots.

I don’t know if they still do it, but when I walked through Boston’s North End in the ‘70’s there were rabbit carcasses, both skinned and skin-on, hanging outside stores and restaurants.

Still, if squirrels and other critters are getting to it, and if wandering dogs are chewing on it, then it sounds like they're doing it wrong. It might be that the Turkish family are used to curing meat in a different climate, and could use a few tips on building an indoor curing chamber?

When I lived in Alaska, we got a Huskie/German Shephard mix. He used to dig up things in the woods, long dead, and eat them with no problems. He would also fish salmon out of the stream, competing with the brown bears for the best spots on the bank.

Yes they did ... Since then, I've studied Alexander's history and ... I'll look the lion element up and reply later.

If you're the Chief of Police in gay Palm Springs, if you make a comment about public meat displays during a sting operation, you lose your job....
