    Meet 73-year-old Arthur Boyt, notorious resident of remote Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, and connoisseur of cooking and eating roadkill - nothing is too far fetched or fanciful to end up on his plate. In this film we take a trip into Arthur's universe and learn how to cook a cracking badger casserole, as well as find out how best to prepare polecat meat before cooking...

    "I ate a badger once that someone else had picked up because they wanted its skull. It was blown up like a horse on the western front and it smelt rather horrible. When I cut into it the flesh was green but nevertheless I persevered and stewed it. It made the house smell like the old fashioned mental hospitals used too, but boy it tasted delicious!"

    I just kept having smell flashbacks come to me as he described these various things. Also, the eternal question "can you eat a badger peen?" has finally been answered.

    I can deal with rotting flesh in person to an extent, but reading this made me a bit queasy. Think I'm gonna pass on the video, haha
     
  8. That stewed badger head nearly turned my stomach - Just reminds me of boiling skulls to clean them!

    Interesting video, thanks for posting! Not sure I would eat a stewed badger head, although I have eaten the meat from squirrel, raccoon, and opossum that I've picked up fresh off the road. I even have a front license plate on my truck that says "Roadkill: It's What's for Dinner" !
