raccoonTEMPLE CITY – The Health Department has taken action after a local supermarket’s frozen foods section featured an unusual item.

Inspectors from the LA County Health Department visited the Metro Supermarket in Temple City on Tuesday, after being informed that the market was selling raccoons as food.

Employees at the market declined to appear on camera, but did show entire raccoons, frozen, bagged, and selling for $9.99 per pound. The employees say raccoon is considered a delicacy in China.

“The way it’s packaged in the store, it’s so real, and it’s so fresh, and you don’t see chickens with their feathers and blood all over them, and their expression, with their tongue hanging out,” Dow said.  More

The mother of four said they first found animals in the walls back in 2012 and have been removing the items ever since.

The dead animals were all wrapped in old newspapers from the 1930s and 40s.  More

The signs are meant to alert criminals to the fact that many people in the rural Pennsylvania town of 3,000 are armed.

A dozen have been installed so far and three more are slated to go up, which would cover every major road into the town.

Officials hope the signs give would-be criminals second thoughts before causing trouble.  More

He said he disguised himself as a homeless man to teach his congregation a  lesson about compassion.

To make his appearance more convincing, he contacted a Salt Lake City makeup artist to transform his familiar face to that of a  stranger not even his family recognized.  More
