TV show ‘Two Fat Ladies’’ Clarissa Dickson Wright recently made statements that raised some eyebrows; as reported by The Mirror, she encouraged people to cook and eat culled badgers saying they taste good.
Culled badgers are protected by law and have been since 1973.
However, as reports go hundreds of them will be killed under a temporary license because they’re believed to be the case of tuberculosis spread to cattle.
The chef said that instead of throwing them away in the landfill site, people should go ahead and eat them, telling the The Mirror: "It would solve the problem. I would have no objection to eating badgers.
“When I was a teenager most of the pubs in the West Country had badger hams on the bar.
"It was delicious. It tasted like young wild boar.”
These comments made by the TV chef irked Brian May, the legendary guitarist from band Queen, who is the leading campaigner against the cull.
He is quoted by The Mirror saying: “I think we should seriously consider eating senseless people like this Clarissa whoever-she-is.
“She’s obviously outlived her ¬usefulness. I wonder if she would be best boiled or braised.”
