I was talking to the girlfriend last night and I told her of a friend who had of a mate who decided to try and eat fox one day. Im told he cut of the saddle, coated it in wonderful tempting spices and garlic and went onto roast it on a slow heat. MMMM yummy he thought as he opened the oven, or so I was told by my firend, then he took a bite and promptley threw minging Charlie in the bin.
Now the reason for this... I told her was charlie is just a minging chicken killing fiend but she said theres more to it than that. What she said was that we are at the top of a food chain and a fox would also in its own right be at the top of its food chain and any animal at the top of a food chain shouldnt eat others at top. I was scratching my head at this and she went onto explain. She told me that alot of South African tribes only eat certain animals as the ones at the top of the food chain (carnivors) are full of toxins that if eaten over extended periods are bad for them, in perticular the liver which is loaded with toxins.
She also went onto say that this didnt apply to animals on the lower food chains such as Herbivours which of course are safe to eat. So basically carnivore shouldnt eat carnivore?
Hence why lions hunt herbivours unless starving.
Any comments on this please as Im sure someone will know about this.
