This from a press release from January last year:
LONDON: It needs a brave soul and a strong stomach to have dinner with Arthur Boyt.
And his recipes may soon gain a wider following, because he hopes to publish a roadkill cookery book.
Mr Boyt, 66, who used to work in the fire protection business, has tucked into a labrador - just like a nice piece of lamb - two lurchers (hunting dogs), cats and a great horseshoe bat, not to mention squirrels, foxes, mice, deer and pigeon. He even brought a dead porcupine back from holiday in Canada. He has a weasel in the freezer but thinks it is too smelly to eat, and he has just picked up a barn owl he is keen to taste.
Maybe the two of them will meet up and fight to see who is king of the UK roadkill - the loser gets run over and eaten, obviously.
