Police in England, said that a man called to complain that a supermarket sold him human flesh instead of animal meat.
Police said that the man was drunk at the time he made the call.
The man of Openshaw, said that the packaged lamb shank he bought seemed odd and tasted strange when he cooked it.
Inspector Shan Nasim of the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said that the man called the police around 5:00 p.m. The man asked for an officer to come to his house to examine the meat.
When officers arrived, the drunk man told them that he had eaten half of the human meat because he was hungry and “could not wait any longer.”
Police determined that the man was highly intoxicated and that the meat was lamb shank and not human meat as he had claimed.
