Balut Wire

balut-nz-0514.jpgA New Zealand restaurant serving balut, the Filipino delicacy that features a duck embryo with feathers and a beak, has been cleared after an investigation by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). The restaurant's owner tells the New Zealand Herald that the investigator apparently thought that the restaurant "drop[s] the egg with a live duck squirming in boiling water" but realized that was not the case.
