What a lot of fuss about killing a rat to eat! Are the Australian RSPCA upset about killing or eating the rat on I’m a Celebrity get me out of here? To charge Gino and Stewart they must be mad!
“But Timmy you’re a vegetarian!” So don’t expect me to eat it! But when you’re in a starving hungry situation things might be different….
We pay a lot to eat oysters!
I’m reminded of the fuss last year when I found a bright blue freshwater crayfish under a rock near the washing up area.
“Quick fetch the pan and we’ll cook it!” I cried. The others rushed over and the producers got in a panic “Celebrities leave the wildlife alone!” the tannoy boomed. But by then I’d already decided to let it go, when I found 7 little baby crayfish under it’s tail. This was a mother hiding with her young and I certainly wasn’t going to harm it, even though we were famished.
Unlike the previous German show where a loud rock star had caught and eaten crayfish and yabbies found in the creek. The producers were in a panic!
Of course lots of bits of animal are used in bush tucker trials and every year celebrities are encouraged to bite the heads off live witchedy grubs. So why then is there a fuss over killing and eating a rat when they are hungry? I certainly wouldn’t eat the rat, but I’ll defend the right of others to kill and eat it!
I’ll just have the same old rice and beans thanks….
