DUNBAR, West Virginia -

Some waited nearly two hours for a plate. 

The annual "Critter Dinner" in Dunbar brought in more than 1,000 patrons for their "exotic" buffet. 

Water buffalo chili, elk ribs and other hard to find treats awaited the long lines. 

A few canned goods was the price of entry. Volunteers say they filled up several truck beds to donate to a local food pantry.
