Frank “Bring ‘Em Back Alive and Ready to Eat” Buckland made a hobby out of tasting animals: Horses, ostriches, kangaroos, mice, earwigs, even boiled and fried slices of flesh from the head of an old porpoise.
This article on the origin of the phrase “eating crow” includes roast giraffe, elephant trunk soup, and a disinterred leopard from the London Zoo in his menu. (It is unknown, however, if he ever did eat actual crow.)
PETA would love this guy.
(Myself, the wildest food I’ve eaten is itlog ng bayawak — monitor lizard eggs. They’re squishy and salty.)
