They probably already serve it here.

Ewwww. Not for my tum tum. But I commend him for his ecologically sound, straitforward and practical approach. I love it when English people are delightfully eccentric and seem daft but are really damn smart. His culinary adventures remind me of this "weird meat" post.

He's apparently a retired entomologist. I don't know why, but that makes it even more quaint.

My dad socialises with this guy and I know for a fact that Arthur enjoys running around forests..

Quite practical actually - he'd know not to eat the meat if its maggots are 2nd or 3rd instar.

No idea. Google doesn't seem to know either which means I can't pretend to know.

They're small Russian meat pies. But yours would be made from chipmunks. Give me the points!

i cant decide how disturbed i am by this.

dead animals are dead animals whether they are shot or hit by cars or whatever, and he has a point in saying that his arent full of the crap that gets injected in the meat in the grocery store. and they are free...

i mean, im not about to change my vegan ways but this is an interesting way of life.

Might I suggest a title for Boyt's book: À la recherche des chiens perdus

or, for the English-language edition: How Fresh is That Doggie in the Phyllo?

My parents hit a partridge once. It was still alive, so they picked it up to nurse it, but it croaked on the way home, and it just seemed like such a waste...

Mmm, tender and juicy it was.

On lazy days Boyt might want to use some Roadkill Helper. Arthur Boyt and Dr. Splatt have roadkill in common. There's a video which includes mentioning the impact of daylight savings time on animals-as-roadkill. Then there's the charming RoadKill Rugs site, maybe something the vegetarian Mrs. Boyt might buy for her carnivorous hubby. And Roadkill Bill, anti-car comics by Avidor, told from the point of view of roadkill.
