Most likely, once its cooked to any reasonable temp there is no way leprosy can survive.

Wild pig meat is far more of a risk than dillo.

When I was growing up we used to hunt in Starr county. Came into camp after our Sunday morning hunt one time and one of the ranch hands was cleaning one to cook up. We always headed home after Sunday morning so we didn't get to try it. I would have though.

Been skinning and eating them my entire life. Nothing but fat little pigs. Make sure not to pop the innards and you'll be fine. Guisado, fried, stew barbeque, it's all good

Never eaten one, but have witness one spray painted and turned loose in the school house. I am sure it would be an act of terrorism in 2020 to do that, but in 1997 it was hilarious.

First only around 5% of the population can even get Leprosy, Second it is curable. If you want to know more then come to the next NALC catahoula dog show. The place we have it in Louisiana is the first place in the world that they cured it. They have a museum dedicated to the disease. The onsite hotel that we stay in use to be the hospital.

My son and I were at the lease this weekend. He wanted to find a skull, so I took him to our bone yard. I walked up on a dead pig probly about a week in the sun. There was a dillo shoulder deep in that pigs neck, having a great time! I walked up to about two feet behind him and just watch for a while. What was he eating? Bugs? Meat? Never seen them do that before.

He started munching on it, and said it tasted a lot like chicken. Never will forget that.....

I'm never sure whether to laugh or be sad over food biases and the justifications around them.

Anyone not trying new food because of their silly cultural biases are missing out!

Possum on the half shell. Makes some good BBQ. The old Lady that owned the Walking Cane Ranch where I used to hunt back in the late 60's early 70's out by Palo Pinto cooked them and rattlesnakes for us every year. I remember them tasting like chicken/pork mixed and a bit greasy but delish. She also cooked the best red beans I ever et. Cooked over an open fire in a 5 gallon cast iron pot.
Whatever we brought in she would cook it for us.

As for Leprosy, I have been in several leper colonies in Vietnam and neither myself or any of my 4th I.D. buddies ever came down with it. VC and NVA liked to hide ammo and weapon stashes in the colonies so we went in and searched the place. We never found any stashes but other units did. The people that had the disease were horribly disfigured. Pretty sure they contracted the disease from working in the rice paddies barefoot and living on the ground a lot.
