It's the first ever World Champion Squirrel Cook Off and it happened right here in Northwest Arkansas.

"We have a panel of 5 judges and each team is judged on their side dish and on their entree. And the predominant meat for your dish has to be squirrel," Founder, Joe Wilson said.

Today 20 contestants set up in Bentonville and made their best and most original squirrel dishes.

"You actually have to chop and prepare all of your food right here on site so when squirrels come in they're whole squirrels."
