    Known for my unconventional reports, I am a digital journalist for My FOX Carolinas in Charlotte. I was born a long time ago in Syracuse, New York. Since then I have spent most of my life in Pennsylvania and Colorado. My biggest weakness: I have no weaknesses. I’m a smooth operator, operating correctly, and a master of journalism according to the University of Colorado.

               The City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services offers dead animal pickups.  Proper disposal of dead animals is key to the health of humans as well as other animals.  Sending the animal remains to the landfill may be fine for most, but if you are an avid recycler or a naturalist, there may be a better option…  Like eating them.

               Jonathan McGowan has been living off of road kill for nearly thirty years.  “When I left home at 18, all I’ve eaten is basically road kill.  I’ve rarely bought any meat from the supermarket,” he says.  He considers trashing the animals to be a waste of organic meat.”

Here are a few of Jonathan’s personal road kill recipes.

JONATHAN'S ROADKILL PIGEON AU VIN'

Serves: Two

1) Take one 8oz roadkill pigeon breast and wash it in warm water which will partially cook it.

2) Place it in foil with 100ml of red wine and cook it thoroughly for around half an hour on a low heat.

3) Mix in with onion and a white sauce and continue to cook it again for another 20 minutes.

Serve with celery and parsnips. It also goes well with chips and roast potatoes.

RECIPE FOR ROADKILL BADGER STEW

Serves: Four

1) Skin one badger and cut into pieces before browning in a frying pan with butter until pieces are golden and stiff,

2) Flambée with glass of Armagnac and pour over one bottle of dry, sparkling wine, then simmer gently for two hours.

3) Mix cooked, chopped badger liver, a glass of pig's blood, two egg yolks and a pot of crème fraîche and serve immediately

Serve with wild mushrooms or chestnuts.

RECIPE FOR OWL CURRY
