Detroit has lost more than half of its post WW2 population of two million and is well known among urban explorers for its crumbling and decaying infrastructure. In a city slipping back into wilderness and where you can buy a house for $40, Mr. Beasley hunts with his dogs, dispatching his target critters with a .22 rifle. The Detroit News sent a smarmyish reporter to get the story and to try BBQ coon with Mr. Beasley, click over to their site and watch it. I'd eat raccoon. I bet that's good eatin' (with a near zero carbon footprint to boot!). Yum! Still interested in Detroit? Our food blogger lets us in on their plan to be ...a natural foods capital?
