Don't Have Enough to Worry About?

Well, consider this important information from Survivalist News:

"Homeless Eating Pets And Small Children to Survive

The United States is not experiencing a famine but millions of homeless families are facing starvation as they fight to survive on the streets. The mental stress of losing their home in the financial collapse and lack of functional street skills is forcing many to find easy access meals for their family. A small dog in the backyard or an unwatched child playing near the street are easy targets for the desperate and hungry.

A whole family of apparent cannibals has been found living near the south side zoo in Des Moines, IA. From what’s been reported the 3 adults, 2 teens and 4 very young children were taken into custody after a teacher on a field trip to the zoo reported a missing child around 1 pm. Tuesday afternoon leading to a search of the area. Unfortunately they were too late to save the missing 4 year old.

It’s being reported that the child was deceased and had been partially consumed by the group before police discovered the scene late in the evening Tuesday."

Needless to say, as far as I can tell, this incident, if it happened at all, occurred in another city named Des Moines IA, on another planet; but still, you never know...

Survivalist News concludes their article with this highly useful suggestion:

"Cannibalism should not be considered a reliable protein source in post collapse America or a replacement for reliable food storage."

Really, where would we be without people like this to help us make our plans for the future?

Supposedly a quote from WC Fields in answer to the question "Do you like children?"

Fields: "Yes. Boiled."
