An Enterprising Canuck

Francis Wharton was nicknamed "The Backwoods Eccentric" who lived far from civilization in Little Fort, B.C. in the 1950s and 60s. When he found himself needing a pair of dentures he shot a deer and used its teeth to make dentures for himself.

Then turned around and ate the deer ...with its own teeth.
