Would you eat road-kill while pregnant?

I was amused that they think it's so bizaare that a pregnant woman would crave wild game. I'm assuming since she does some work with the animals and her art that she understands how fresh a corpse is upon examination. Weirdo or the ultimate locavore/sustainable paleo mom of the year?

Here's her ???Foot & Fadge??? terrine made from an organic pig???s trotter and uterus with goji berries http://alisonbrierley.wordpress.com/category/road-kill/

I think this woman is my new hero.

i picked up a deer on the road side not too long ago and had it processed into close to 100 pounds of sausage. I was not pregnant but if I was I would have still eaten it. Do you think a group of H-G would have turned down a fresh kill by a lion if the lion was killed in the fight? Survival of the fittest.

But PS-no way I will be pregnant anytime soon. My oldest is 46 yr. old and my youngest is 37 yr. old.

I eat roadkill (deer) when I get it. Tastes like normal deer meat to me ;) All the damaged meat will be cut away anyway, so I don't see the problem.

EDIT: So, to please the comment from Dragonfly: I would serve it to my pregnant wife (given I had one...) without any problems.

Random roadkill lying in the road for who knows how long? Not unless I was desperate. But if the time it was killed is known and recent, I don't see how it would be any worse than wild meat that was intentionally hunted.

When I was in elementary, my bus driver hit a deer on the way to school. My brother jumped out of the bus, ran the mile up the hill to alert our nearest neighbors, and within minutes they had removed the carcass and we continued on our way to class.

Later that day, those neighbors stopped by the house with a generous portion of venison, and later that week, jerky. It was delicious. :)

Sure! Only if I ran it down myself, though.

In Northern BC a firend of ours who has Crohn's disease is on an alert list and whenever there is road kill (highway or train) he is notified to come collect the carcass because he can't tolerate beef.

If it was fresh, sure I'd eat it.

When my father was in college, he somehow worked out a deal with the local police that they would call him when a deer was very recently struck by a car and he'd go get it and take it home and butcher it. I imagine that though the shattered bones and hemorrhaged organs might make certain parts unpleasant, the fact that it probably died instantly rather than being stressed might make it actually taste better.

Here if you crash into an elk you too end up as roadkill.

I don't eat wild game (or feed it to my pets) before prolonged freezing to kill off the nastier parasites. Would be even more careful if pregnant.

Roadkill is about the only benefit I get from cars. Wish it didn't get taken so quickly around here (metro area).
