Squirrel: It's What's for Dinner


Fri, Jul 30th, 2010 13:00 by capnasty NEWS

The owner of a local Budgens supermarket, Andrew Thornton, has defended selling squirrel meat as a sustainable way of feeding people and says it has a "lovely" rabbit-like taste. Reportedly, Thornton sells up to 15 squirrels a week when they are in stock.

The animal welfare group Viva accused Budgens of profiting from a "wildlife massacre". Thornton rejected the claim noting that selling 10 or 15 squirrels a week does not fall into the definition of a massacre.
