German soldiers ate sausage made from their own blood

‘Two German air force officers have been suspended from service for making and eating blutwurst, or blood sausage, from their own blood.

One of the soldiers, based in the southern German city of F├╝rstenfeldbruck near Munich, posted photos of the meal on a popular website.

Disciplinary action against the soldiers is underway, a military official told German weekly magazine Focus on Saturday. The case may also be passed on to state authorities.

According to the military official, the unsavory incident came to light when the soldiers asked a fellow officer for blood this summer. The soldier reported the request to his superior officers.’
