How do you hunt for food in a big metro area when you are flat busted?
I saw some pigeons and squirrels in the park downtown but everybody was watching. What green things can you eat? Still have a few dollars left but not much. Slingshot, traps or what? Water supply is okay.

Nasty as it sounds, try dumpster diving behind food stores. They throw away a tremendous amount of food, most of which is perfectly edible.

a few bucks? That's enough Wal-Mart Ramen for at least a week! Also, find places that provide free condiments. You can make soup with that water you have plus a little ketchup. Relish is also good enough to eat on it's own.

Dumpster diving is your only hope, that, and begging for money on the streets.

I would think rats would be easier to catch over squirrels, also no one is going to villainize you for killing a rat.
