Kangaroo Sausages Leave Customers Hopping Mad

MAINZ, West Germany — West Germans who thought they were eating an exceptionally good salami-type sausage have been shocked to learn that the meat was kangaroo.

A butcher was fined the equivalent of $25,000 here Wednesday after officials uncovered a five-year-old fraud involving sausages that contained meat ranging from kangaroo to horse and elk. Five other butchers are currently serving jail terms.
