A cook at a Nebraska school is out of a job after serving kangaroo meat to students.
Mike Williams, Superintendent for Potter-Dix Schools located in the panhandle, says the junior/senior high school's head cook in Potter, Kevin Frei, no longer works for the district.
The exotic meat had been mixed with the beef in chili served to students and in a letter to parents, Williams vowed that the meat would not be used in their schools again. He says that Frei told him he'd mixed kangaroo meat in with the chili's beef on October 10th because it is lean and nutritious. How Frei obtained the kangaroo meat is unknown.
Williams says the kangaroo meat wasn't unhealthy or dangerous, but admitted that it was "without a doubt not a normal staple of our diet." The superintendent apologized for any worries the kangaroo meat may have caused.
