Grilling Guinea Pigs, in Prospect Park

A man grilled one of several guinea pigs this weekend, in Prospect Park.

He was a very sweet man, actually, and when I approached him, he said 'cuy' (pronounced 'quee'). I asked whether he was from Ecuador, and he said yes.

Later, Mark saw that someone had called the police, thinking the man was 'mistreating a squirrel'. The police call made it to several internet news sites, including the New York Daily News.

Guinea pigs are popular pets for children here, hence the surprise.

Something I have not seen before... cooking a guinea pig that is. I guess it's better than suffering a slow death in lab.
