[NAFEX] squirrels as food

Dear all,
What about slugs? Are they edible? We eat escargot, a snail carrying its 
shell, so I have started wondering about slugs. I can tell you that they are 
plentiful in this part of the world right now, with the unusual overcast 
skies and daily downpours we have been having. We find slugs everywhere. It 
would be pointless to tell you what they are capable of when they are 
present in great numbers.
However, if we though of them as a source of easily accessible protein, then 
it could be seen as a bonus....
Any comments or recipes?
