Creatures, Myths & Legends
Once venerated by the natives of Madagascar, the island's lemurs are becoming endangered as cultural changes have resulted in the creature now being seen as a viable food source. Previously, it had been considered taboo on the island to hunt or kill the animal, but a recent study uncovered a staggering number of lemurs being eaten in villages on the island. Experts blame outsiders coming to work at the island's mines and their rising demand for meat as the key factor in the lemur's changing fortunes. More on the story at BBC News.
