A video allegedly showing a piece of raw meat loosening from a dining table became viral in July 2019. This video has been shared by several stores under different captions, but most have described it as a "Zombie Cattle" Video:
The video was first released on Chinese social media sites such as Weibo in June 2019. When the video reached the UK outlets about a week later, it was often accompanied by jokes about "zombie chicken." Kong News reported on this video on June 17, reporters identified the animal as a recently skinned frog. An early post from the Facebook page 笑 笑 没 烦恼 (laugh, do not worry) also identified this "zombie" meat as a frog.
However, these sources do not seem to know first-hand about the incident, so we should include their claims with a grain of salt.
Speaking of salt … This video shows an extremely fresh piece of meat. Although this animal is certainly dead, its neurons are still active and appear to respond to sodium ions, a chemical compound found in salt and soy sauce.
When the Scientific American 201
When a creature dies, its neurons do not stop working immediately. As long as there is enough energy left to sustain this membrane potential, the neurons work.
What you may have noticed is that in the case of the dancing dead, the cooks added a key ingredient: salt (soy sauce) is very salty). Salt – or sodium chloride – is full of sodium ions. This overwhelming dose of sodium ions is enough to get the still functioning neurons to fire and signal the muscles to contract.
Scientific American commented on the following video from 2009. Although the reaction in this material is not that severe, it does show how salt can cause a raw piece of meat to twitch:
 An article by Brain Stuff explains why these dead animals seem to "dance" while salting: As you can see, the cook prepares frog legs for dinner. He has skinned the frogs legs and they are ready to be cooked. When he salts them, the muscles start to twitch. The obvious question: why does this happen?
Since they are fresh frog legs, the cells in them are all still intact. The biochemical machinery still works. There is also an energy source for the muscles in the form of unused ATP molecules stored in the cells. All the muscles need is something to activate them, and they can still contract and relax (until they run out of ATP or something else turns off the biochemical machines) …
It is a nervous signal of the living frog Brain That tells the muscle to contract. In this case it is the sodium in the salt.
Although we could not figure out the exact origin of this video, this footage was probably shot in a restaurant where Ikizukuri is practiced, a method of preparing live seafood. This preparation method is most commonly used in fish, but also octopus, shrimp, lobster and frogs can be prepared in this way.
In 2012, a restaurant in Tokyo was on the way of the demonstrators after a video showing the production of a live frog sashimi dish became viral. Fox News described the video (see here):
In the video, a big frog is stabbed, skinned, gutted and served on an ice plate with a slice of lemon and soy sauce. Although the frog is immediately killed by the chef's knife, it takes a few agonizing minutes for the frog to stop moving. In these moments, the creature's eyes flash back into the camera, while the music of the Maudlin plays in the background, and in certain places the frog beats its arms on the bowl and flutters while the heart beats.
Although we can Many details about this "Zombie Frog" video "
Zombie Chicken " can not be confirmed. It certainly falls into the area of plausibility.
