"Rat hunting in Arunachal Pradesh. The town of Ziro, in Arunachal Pradesh, is home to an unusual evening snack tradition. The men of the village take to the fields in search of rats, large and small! Their tactic? They first poke around to find out where the rats live, set up small fires to smoke them out of their underground tunnel networks, and catch them upon exit. Some are quite fast, so quick hands are a necessity. The rats are then killed and tied up before being brought back to the village to be prepared for dinner. Their insides are removed before they are put on skewers to be cooked over the fire. After a thorough roast, they are ready to eat!
