I think that we're being to judgmental about people who have different practices from us. Sure, under the current circumstances, eating a bat of unknown origin isn't a great idea, but other than that... Did the mad cow disease make us stop eating beef? Nope! We adjusted our regulation in regards to our meat supply, but other than that, after we made sure the cows were healthy, business as usual. It's not that bats look appetizing to me, and I would have a problem with eating a monkey, especially the ones who display a more humanoid behaviour and species that can appear sentient in general, although that probably mostly applies to apes and maybe whales. But other than whales and chimps and the likes... I really don't have a problem with people eating whatever they consider yummy. If I've eaten pig, cow, sheep, goat, chicken, duck, goose, rabbit, deer, horse, fish, squids, shells, prawns... and it's all mostly considered normal, and if people tell me that camel is really tasty and it's cool to eat frog legs and snails, how do we say to someone "Yuck... Barbaric!" for eating a bat? What do we have to back it up? Again, supply chain issues aside.
