Cat eaters[edit]

I read that these people eat cats, but I cannot find a RS to support this. Does anyone have one? 87.114.85.237 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 03:04, 7 December 2011 (UTC).

This BBC article states "Cats are a culinary delicacy in some parts of Ghana" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-11179330 87.114.85.237 (talk) 03:11, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Ewe History / Religious Bias[edit]

Major problems with this section. Nothing at all is sourced, and many fantastic assertions are presented as fact. A long account is prefaced with the claim: "The Ewes of Togo, like other major African ethnic groups, descended from the Biblical Noah..." Made decision to excise this section. If something here can be sourced, even to put some of these claims into the folkloric claims of the locals (doubtful, as this is not an Abrahamic-identified group), please do and reinstate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iasonaki (talkcontribs) 00:29, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Did further web research on articles which presented same "facts" for Ewe history, and is a small self-referential circle of similarly unsourced articles, with no academic credentialling. Recommend a watch on page if further changes in this vein. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iasonaki (talkcontribs) 00:39, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
