My fave grub is road kill

`Canny Arthur Boyt gets his meat free — by tucking into dead animals he finds on the road.

The retired civil servant, 66, loves nothing better than a tasty stew or sandwich made of badgers, weasels or rats.

He has spent FIFTY years scraping up roadkill with a shovel — then skinning and cooking the carcasses. The sprightly pensioner even dines on cats and dogs.

Arthur, of Davistow, Cornwall, said yesterday: “I would rather eat a country rat than some of the meat served up in restaurants.

“People are happy to eat an apple which has fallen out of the tree and is lying on the floor — so what’s the difference?”’
