We all know women carve some weird stuff when there's a baby in their belly. Beyonce has been craving ketchup, Hilary Duff stuffing herself with red hots, and british artist Alison Brierley has been craving ROADKILL!!
"I'm pregnant I get strong cravings for roadkill,"
Alison says — WAY too casually! The long lost member of the Beverly Hillbillies says throughout her pregnancy she has been feasting on rabbit, deer, pigeon, and owls, and pheasant. She's like to try fox and Badger, but Brierley says they are hard to find in one piece.
What is it about wild meat that gets her baby kick'n?
"It's more gamey than other meat and I love the taste. I also don't have to feel guilty about eating it because I know it's had a completely free range and natural life."
We're not sure you can find any owl meat that isn't 100% free range. At least Alison isn't having to pay top dollar (or British currency) for her exotic tastes.
The thrifty mom-to-be reveals:
"I get the best meat from friends who ring me up to tell me about a kill they've spotted on their way to work."
For her child's sake we're all hoping this raodkill kick ends after Alison gives birth!
