Probably due to not wanting the death of an animal but replicating what we all enjoy. The flavour and texture of meat. I have always said that anyone wanting to eat meat ought to take a life at least once. Poultry or a pig. It isn't that easy. Most people don't identify meat with an actual animal. It is just something you buy from a supermarket in a packet.

Tomas Schaffernaker the weather man was 35 before he found out that Lamb and Sheep were the same animal.

Normal village life in Ukraine where the majority of the cockerels raised from chicks are destined for the pot. BIL is the families pig dispatcher & then a family job to bleed for black pudding, burn off the bristles, render & make the sausages. Used to regularly get a brace of pheasants from a friend who goes shooting. Used to hang them for a few days in the cold garage to mature, then me & the wife would gut & pluck them. The old birds (you can tell from the legs) went in the stewing pot, while the younger ones in the roasting tin.

When it comes to killing for meat I look at it that the animal would not have a good but short life but for the fact we breed & raise them to eat.

I think the rule of thumb is that you hang them until the maggots appear.  ::)

Then they'll be nice and gamey!  ;D

Our distant, and not so distant forebears would fall about laughing, or crying, about all this.

Even my grandmother would have shouted "think yourself bloody lucky you have food to eat"!

She remembered the days when people went for long periods without anything decent to eat, bread, veg, and especially meat.

I hated her neck of lamb stews, which my mum also used to specialise in, but if I complained........................well, heaven help me!! :o :o :o
