    I looked for info on this, and found a forum for hunters that had a thread on this topic. Apparently, it's easy to determine the last meal of the animal you are butchering. Otherwise, you can know whether the salmon are running, whether berries are in season, or whether there is a garbage dump in the area. But they mostly agree that sometimes the bears taste good, and sometimes not, and the reason isn't always obvious.

    I've never eaten bear, myself, though.

    Although my guess is they mostly look at the stomach contents for that, rather than tasting the meat.

    Or you could check the bear's pockets for a restaurant receipt!

    Man, I just wouldn't feel safe eating a bear that failed to socially distance like that.
    Blood-red were his spurs i' the golden noon; wine-red was his velvet coat,
    When they shot him down on the highway,
    Down like a dog on the highway,
    And he lay in his blood on the highway, with the bunch of lace at his throat.

    Maybe instead of celebrity cannibalism, we get cannibalism celebrities? People who are famous because their particular strain of meat is deemed tastier for some quirky genetic reason...

The pancakes are also laced with blowfish poison so the party would have to get an antitoxin before they could eat the ones which weren't pulverized by shoes."

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Incidentally, there are very rarely anything like the same rules applied to vegetables or fruits or cereal grains. Meat requires very careful handling and preparation. Even in the modern world, crab or lobster or shrimp have the potential to kill you if they are prepared clumsily.

    Don't forget a few kinds of fish can be deadly if not prepared correctly as well.
