'Eat roadkill' says new face of the RSPB

8 posts in this topic

She was unveiled as the new face of the RSPB this weekend.

But its more than one million members might be surprised to learn that Miranda Krestovnikoff, the BBC broadcaster, is championing the eating of some of Britain's wildlife - more precisely, roadkill.

The presenter has told how she wants more people to source their meat not from a local supermarket or specialist butchers, but rather, from the roadside.

When it comes to the possibility of ingesting hordes of parasites I suppose you can't do any worse with roadkill than you do with the factory farmed stuff we have now. (doesn't much matter what country)

Considering that most beef (or any meat) sits in lockers for weeks before going to the shelf, scraping up a squashed raccoon that has been kissing pavement for weeks isn't any better.

(That sirloin you buy isn't "fresh")

The main precaution to take when eating road-kill is making sure somebody keeps a constant lookout for oncoming traffic!

I once struck two quail while taking my mom to visit a sister. She insisted we stop and get them so I did. They were not run over, rather were killed by impact with the car's grill so she plucked them and put them on ice. THAT is as close as I'd ever come to eating roadkill. I have read recently that some states are using freshly killed large game, deer and moose, to help feed prisoners etc. The issue isn't where the animal was killed so much as when :)

After dispatching large injured game in Alaska they use the carcass to feed those in need.

Or so the show Alaska State Troopers told me as I lazily flipped channels the other day.

I think deer and moose would be fine, but I'd certainly balk at certain roadkill.

What and then and Lilly said sounds fine, but I too would be hesitant on other types.
