"I get the best meat from friends who ring me up to tell me about a kill they've spotted on their way to work." From Metro UK.
Pregnant woman develops bizarre craving for roadkill
By Aaron-Spencer Charles - 8th November, 2011
Artist and taxidermist Alison Brierley has found herself craving feasts of roadkill as a result of her pregnancy.
The 42-year-old has been eating an array of animals killed along her local roads in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Brierley often used her roadkill to make jewellery from their hides, but now the mum-to-be has gone full throttle with her new diet.
'Usually I eat really healthily but now I'm pregnant I get strong cravings for roadkill,' explained Brierley. 'It's more gamey than other meat and I love the taste. I also don't have to feel guilty about eating it because I know it's had a completely free range and natural life.'
Ms Brierley has eaten hare, deer, pigeon, rabbit and owls, with pheasant being the most prevalent of her dishes.
'I would like to try fox and badger but they're never in good enough condition to eat; although I have used them for my artwork.’ said Brierley.
The 42-year-old admitted she has even hosted roadkill dinner parties for friends.
'They trust me and they know I'm a good cook so I think they love it. I get the best meat from friends who ring me up to tell me about a kill they've spotted on their way to work,' she added.
Eating fresh roadkill is something close to Brierley's heart as she believes in an alternative food lifestyle.
‘One of the big reasons for being public about this is that I want to raise awareness about where food actually comes from’, said Alison. ‘Some people are so blasé about picking their food off a supermarket shelf without giving a thought to how it lived or how it was killed.’
