Badger meat was a common dish in some parts of Catalonia too (Northern Spain) for what I understand.

Would you eat it with a little salt and pepper?
The poll is still open and it is almost a tie.

Wonder if Mark has been lobbying the UK government to allow them to harvest the pelts.

I have actually tried it. It was a very long time ago and I don't remember what it tastes like but it was NO chicken! They are still food in parts of eastern Russia. What else will you do with meat once you skin them? Biggrin

Guys, one word... YUCK!

They have too many diseases thet we can get. I could never get that hungry, not even if I was dying of starvation. I find this as appealing as eating tapeworms.

Feed them cooked to the dogs... OK, but for me... Pass the veggies and potatoes please.

I'm against the cull but if does go ahead despite the huge public outcry then I'm of the view that they should be used. I've always been taught that you only kill an animal if you are going to eat it and never for sport. Pest control fits in too but only as a last resort. I honestly would try it properly cooked and the pelts should go to have brushes made. It a criminal waste to throw away all that resource. The felly that dines on the roadkill turns my stomach though....Eeeeewww!

I like the "badger in blood" recipe...it reminds me of a Filipino dish that my wifes family cooks called Dinuguan...its basically pork cooked in its own blood...nicknamed chocolate pork due to the way it looks when cooked.

Use the racoon dogs.... or minks, or.... Awe, c'mon Russia!

Well, that explains why they have banned the export of badger pelts. Or so I hear.

So the guy eats anything he finds on the road. Badgers, dogs (labradors are his favorite), fox and who knows what else.

No wonder his wife is a vegetarian.

"what's for dinner?"
"Some squirrel I found on the M5"
"I think I'll make a salad"
