I know a method of catching armadillos without a trap but can you eat them without getting sick?
People do eat them, but I've been told the carry leprosy. There is a woman that lives about 10 miles from me that got it after messing with an armadillo.
Would cooking it thoroughly kill that?
Do you have to ingest leprosy germs to have them infect you or is getting it on your skin enough?
Is there a cure for leprosy?
# During the Great Depression, armadillos were known as “Hoover Hogs” because they were eaten instead of the “chicken in every pot” that Hoover had promised.
# Armadillos can contract and carry leprosy (Hansen’s Disease). However, the only known way they can transfer this disease is when humans eat undercooked armadillo meat.
Do people really eat armadillos?
Yes. In many areas of Central and South America, armadillo meat is often used as part of an average diet. I have heard that some peoples of South America keep small varieties of armadillos as edible housepets. The meat is said to taste like fine-grained, high-quality pork.
Do armadillos bite / make good pets?
As with most wild animals No the don't make good pets.

Question: Why did the Chicken cross the road?
Answer: To show the Armadillo it could be done!
I can't imagine eating Armadillo and now after hearing that may carry leprosy, NO THANKS!! lol And I'm also curious to know how you get it's shell off before cooking it? And when do you know when he is cooked enough? You guys have me interested now!
Take my advice, you do not want to eat an armadillo. They taste HORRIBLE, and they can make you very sick.
How would get the shell off anyways?
