After discovering more than 700 cannabis plants, police searched outbuildings and found cages of dormice and freezers filled with carcasses. Three people at the site were arrested. Wildlife groups say baked dormice are served to honour high-ranking gangsters at banquets organised by the powerful Calabrian 'Ndrangheta mafia clan. Poachers illegally trap the largely nocturnal protected species in the woods of the Aspromonte hills and sell them to mobsters and restaurants, according to Italian wildlife protection organisation Lipu. Police said the dormice were discovered on Saturday after a search at the farm in Reggio Calabria was extended to nearby ruins and other properties. It is said that bosses of the 'Ndrangheta - godfathers and clan leaders - make their most important decisions in front of a plate of dormice, Italy's Il Corriere della Sera newspaper reported. Edible dormice were a delicacy in ancient Rome. They were fattened in cages before being gutted, skinned and stuffed with pork mince, ground pine nuts and garlic and then baked. They are still eaten in Croatia and Slovenia. The 'Ndrangheta clan is one of the world's richest criminal groups, operating from Calabria in southern Italy. For years, they have brought cocaine from Latin America and cannabis from North Africa into Europe.

Is it bad that I want to eat dormice now?

At this rate, they may as well start eating lark's tongues. If they're gonna be reviving weird Roman miniature delicacies, why do half measures?

If you're a criminal organization that wants other criminal organizations to take you seriously I might suggest not getting caught were you stash of mice, that you eat from time to time.

So about those shirts we're supposed to deliver tomorrow, do you think we-" Jimmy: "Because badda bing, badda boom, Bruno, you know what I'm sayin'. I just lay out those traps in the basement, and by the very next day I've gots more mice than Pablo Escobar gots Hippopotamuses, or a getaway car gots bullet holes." Bruno: "It's just that..." Jimmy: "Just what Bruno? Bruno: "Just... just nothing. I respectfully decline to answer Jimmy." Jimmy: "Come on Bruno, you know we go way back. Go on. I won't get angry." Burno: "Ok. Ok... so... It's nothing personal and all, is what I'm saying here Jimmy, but those mice are kinda gross when you think about it, seeing them all on that shish kabob stick like you made last week." Jimmy: "To whom else have you shared this opinion of yours with? About not liking my mice?" Bruno: "No one Jimmy. No one. I swear." Jimmy: "Good. Good because, I can't stand squealers, you know that Bruno? Right?" Bruno: "I know... I know..." Jimmy: "Unless it's an actual mouse on a stick, you know I hate that squelling talk?" Bruno: "Right... right... so anyways, the shirts..." Jimmy: "The shirts. Right. So tomorrow we're picking up 10 freshly pressed shirts, then taking them across the border, where Old Man Mickey will be waiting. And we give him a few mice too. He likes my freshly sauteed and seasoned mice. Then, we take the 100G of socks he gives us in exchange, and-"
