One is not allowed to hunt swan (is that a meat) as I believe it belongs to the crown, but guess they can eat it.
I don't think 'bushmeat' is illegal to eat...just illegal to import.

Is horses and donkeys legal to consume?

I think so...aren't they put into dog food?

I mean for human consumption.
is this a "what to have for lunch" thread?
I was once given samples of kangaroo and crocodile jerky that someone had brought back from Australia. I was told they were illegal in the UK.
mmm, also what about cats or dogs?
(sorry to ask another Q on your thread Freudanslip)
Sawns don't all belong to the crown.

I think they are legal to eat.

NazNomad might be the one to ask...he said horse was lovely.
Kangaroo and crodocile aren`t illegal in the UK. I remember several years ago, the supermarkets went through a stage of selling them. However, anyone who goes abroad and brings meat products back into the UK is breaking the law.

Saxyjag I'm pretty sure Crocs and kangeroo meat are legal here as some butchers stock them and a person cooked them once on the program Come dine with me.
Rasman ask away.
I read recently that it is legal to eat cat and dog in this country - I will try and find out where I read that.

It is a cultural thing - we are brought up to see some animals as friends and companions and some as food.
That's probably what they meant, then. Very tasty, though.

Saxyjag what was the consistency and taste like of both of them and don't say chicken!
I had kangaroo for Christmas Lunch.........skippy-licious !

I made a Freud(i)an slip, too.............I thought chuck was saying that 'swans don't all belong to the clown' !
Fancy ! :o)
