  1. Tell us ordinary people how to differentiate between donkey and cow meat and why donkey meat is prohibited please. Most people do not know anything about prohibited meat other than those their religious beliefs forbid.
    Some of the foreign TV channels even show how some insects are reared for use as source of protein and unless your culture has an aversion to it there is no way of knowing you are dealing on contraband product.
