Hi again, Ewan and thanks for requesting me to answer your question.

Recently, cannibalism has been practiced and severely condemned in Liberia and the Congo, in Africa. A tribe called the Korowai were one of the very few tribes still believed to be cannibalistic as a practice of their culture. Also, it is still known to be practiced in war and ritual in various Melanesian tribes. there have also been recent cases of cannibalism in South America.

There are still several tribes in Papua, New Guinea which practice cannibalism and you can read more about them HERE

I hope this helped!

Best regards,
Cher

Wow , thats interesting to know , I had thought that it had been pretty much stopped. So if this guy was out exploring and was caught by a tribe of cannibals how would they deal with him.

Hi again, Ewan and thanks for your reply.

Yes, the practice is still considered illegal and taboo, but in these remote areas of the world, it is still practiced.

From my research, most cannibals eat the flesh of humans raw, but some will cook it in boiling water or over a fire. With this guy in the picture, they would remove his clothing and start eating the flesh off the bones.

I see ,was not sure if they cooked or eat the person raw, how would they remove what the guy is wearing and what they do with it then.

Hi again, Ewan.

They would remove the clothing and either rip up the material and use it for other purposes or they would burn it. It most likely would not interest them in any other way.
