The First-Ever World Champion Squirrel Cook Off Crowns Winner (VIDEO)

It makes sense to eat squirrel -- they are everywhere! However, despite the fact that you often see them scampering in your backyard, you probably don't see them on the plate at your neighborhood restaurant. That doesn't mean they aren't edible though. Just ask the participants of the first-ever World Champion Squirrel Cook Off. Nineteen contestants squared off in the contest, which even interested Andrew Zimmern enough to head to Bentonville, Arkansas to check it out.

Squirrel not your thing? Perhaps you'd prefer pigeon instead.
