I came across this thread a while back.

Some of the comments are rather gross, but the most worrying thing is that some people on the thread were asking where they could buy them...

You just can't get them any more. The animal rights lot think it is a form of exploitation.

CherryPie - crikey! My dad had a tapeworm while he was in Africa during the war. Not much fun at all according to him.

Sam - I suppose when you consider how we get rid of them, they have a point.
