Eating Raw Meat in a Survival Situation

You must always cook wild meat found or caught in a survival situation. True or False?
• True
• False
• Only if dead
• None of the above

Answer: False

Eating raw meat should only be done as a last resort. Yes, there are parasites that can make you sick but starvation will surely kill you. When choices are limited, it’s best to go with survival options especially if the choice will make the difference between life and death.

It’s important to note that eating raw meats can increase the chances of becoming infected with salmonella. Abdominal cramping, diarrhea and fever symptoms can occur 10 to 96 hours of consuming raw meats. Remember, eat raw meat as a last resort and only in survival situations.
