Charles Domery

Charles Domery

Charles Domery was a Polish soldier of normal build who is noted for his unusually large appetite. He surrendered to the French for food, ate 174 cats in 1 year, often ate 4-5 pounds of grass a day, and after a fellow sailor’s leg was severed, he began to eat it. The prison gave him 10x the rations, but he still ate rats, cats and candles to quench his appetite.
