Yesterday a family of raccoons attacked our MW tom. The flesh wounds seem relatively minor (two nickel sized lacerations) but when we found him he was almost unconscious, and he seems completely unable to balance, so Im assuming some kind of catastrophic neurological damage. I'm devastated. Since it seems like slaughter is the only humane option at this point, I am wondering if we can eat him - perhaps as a batch of turkey sausage if the carcass is too damaged for roasting. I've never butchered a bird for eating after an attack - is there any reason not to do it? Is there anything I should be looking for? And of course, if anyone thinks he is healable.. well obviously that would be the most ideal solution.
