Rather than sending scientists off to remote locations to find dna samples, just get them to nip down to the nearest discount supermarket and buy up the cheap meat products.

Pretty much every kind of meat is bound to end up in those products over time.

       Speaking as a scientist who has never, yet, been sent off to a remote location to find DNA samples, I'm against this.

       I think will always be topical. 1862 example   

       "... almost without exception, sell bread adulterated with alum, soap, pearl ashes, chalk, Derbyshire stone-dust, and such like agreeable nourishing and wholesome ingredients...in consequence of these adulterations, the poor man, who lives on two pounds of bread a day, does not now get one fourth part of nourishing matter, let alone the deleterious effects on his health.”
