I was reading a discussion on another board, and it came up that apparently carnivores taste delicious, but since you have to feed them several pounds of meat to harvest one pound of meat, they are uneconomical to raise for food. According to some of the posters, bear is unbelievably delicious, as is lion. And lynx.
Since you guys all walk around with rabbitskin pencilcases, and cook freshly caught woodcocks over open fires etc, I figured a few of you would have tried fox.
So, whats it like?
I doubt you will find too many that have tried it .
The smell of them would be enough to turn anyone off i reckon.
I have on the other hand eaten crocodile and that is delicious it's only a pity we dont release them to hunt like they do in america.
havent tried it but have often thought the same thing. i've heard of people eating badgers and hedgehogs back in the day.
I've eaten Bear and it's delicious. I've never treid fox but would imagine it's like an organic dog. If you look at what they eat - berries, worms, rats, mice, the odd hen, rabbit etc. then they must taste good.
Stiil , don't want to be the first to try........
Have not eaten it myself but iv heard a few stories of people eating in the 30s and the 40s when times were pretty bad. Iv had croc, kangaroo and monkey aswell.
Well, if dog can be almost a national dish in some countries, I imagine it's got to be at least edible.
I'd rather not be the first to try it though
I have in my travels ate dog It is normally eating with spices and rice and be honest you wouldnt know what it was unless you asked.The Dogs are bread for eating by the way
It tends to be tough and so used in stews also used in soups. Remember folks it was amudsens use of dogs in many ways that allowed for his successess on polar expeditions.
Fox....... now I draw the line on eating a fox, however it depends on how hungry I was. Evidence from prehistoric campsites in the uk suggest all animals were a walking feast..
I have dined on canine.The meat is very much like veal in look and texture it was cooked like in a Fondue[boiling oil].Taste...welll...bland and pretty chewy.
Seeing that I am a dog lover I wouldnt' be making it my regular dinner option,of a Jack Russel avec due veg .But being pragmatic it would be an option if things got really tough.
There is historical fact that some hunting mad Vicar in the UK,used to serve up roasted Renaryd in the 18th century for dinner of the hunt.
By and large I think you could eat fox no bother,but seeing it is a predator,you would want to be well careful of not eating any internal organs,brains or spinal cord,and checking it well for internal parasites.
It would be more ethical and social taboos that would stop us from eating things other folk on this planet would think of delicaes.
Fox is not as nice as dolpin, and alot chewier that barn Owl
Never eaten it
any meat that needs to be under running water for 3 days would not be on my plate
Beaver is quite tasty
