Fancy a spot of roadkill for dinner?

An artist and taxidemist has revealed a penchant for roadkill dinners since becoming pregnant. The 42-year-old mum-to-be explained that she has cooked with roadkill animals before, but her pregnancy has made her crave the gamey taste more than ever.

“Usually I eat really healthily but now I'm pregnant I get strong cravings for roadkill,” said Alison Brierley. “It's probably because I need all the natural iron I can get at the moment, what with all these extra red blood cells I am making.”

Alison, 42, is expecting a baby boy with her partner Marcus Speer. A taxidermist and artists by trade, she’s no stranger to picking up roadkill, but she’s conscious of the need to keep her baby safe.
