    Man enjoys road kill diet

    .................

    CANNY Arthur Boyt gets his meat free — by tucking into dead animals he finds on the road. The retired civil servant, 66, loves nothing better than a tasty stew or sandwich made of badgers, weasels or rats.

    He has spent FIFTY years scraping up roadkill with a shovel — then skinning and cooking the carcasses. The sprightly pensioner even dines on cats and dogs.

    Arthur, of Davistow, Cornwall, said yesterday: “I would rather eat a country rat than some of the meat served up in restaurants.

    “People are happy to eat an apple which has fallen out of the tree and is lying on the floor — so what’s the difference?”

    Hedgehogs, squirrels, otters, foxes, sparrows and pigeons have all found their way into his cooking pot.


    He once scoffed a porcupine he brought back from Canada.

    Arthur, a former taxidermist, has a degree in biology so knows which bits of a dead animal are safe to eat.

    He said: “If the animal has been dead a while and has gone green the taste is a bit bland.

    Whew........I don't know him. I was sure I was going to come in here and find one of my neighbor's, LOL.
    I once saw a t- shirt about the road kill cafe, and convinced my son I was going to take him there to eat. He refused to go out to eat for a while!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    "Food for thought"

    If someone eats the meat of an animal that was killed in an accident there is no personal karma of killing.
