This does open up a great idea for a theme cookbook with somewhat
fewer than 50 recipes, including those for...

Wildcat a la Arizona
Razorbacks a la Arkansas
Golden bears a la California
Buffalo a la Colorado
Blue hens a la Delaware
Gators a la Florida
Jayhawks a la Kansas
Wildcat a la Kentucky (different preparation from first entry)
Terrapins a la Maryland
Wolverine a la Michigan
Tiger a la Missouri
Duck a l'Oregon
Ram a la Rhode Island
Longhorn a la Texas
Badger a la Wisconsin

Only some of these species are endangered, and I've omitted the
entries for bulldogs and huskies (as well as those for mountaineers,
cowboys, cavaliers, minutemen, hoosiers, etc.) to spare sensibilities.
