When eating meat becomes a crime

Screenshot (148).png



Picture this – after some of the most fabulous food I had ever tasted in excellent company, I was smuggled out of the back entrance of the venue. You might picture a celebrity being quickly covered in a shawl to disguise her or on the other extreme, a fire alarm going off and guests being rushed to safety. I can assure you now, I am not a celebrity and the fire alarm did not go off. All I did was attend BASC’s Taste of Game evening at Derby Museum – an event which a handful of Derby Hunt Saboteurs had done their utmost to get meat off the menu.

Leaving by the same escape door was a gentleman who had probably done more for animal welfare than any of the balaclava-clad, angry yelling mob who had done their best to get the event cancelled.

The gentleman in question had pioneered a way to prevent chickens from pecking at each other in chicken sheds. Yes, we all want to think of free-range chickens enjoying their life browsing free don’t we. But, we also don’t want to pay more than £3.99 for a dead one.

Herein lies the issue: the food we ate on the evening was ethically and sustainably sourced. How many of the saboteurs can claim that about the food that they had eaten that day? Perhaps an avocado flown halfway around the world, sold for such a price that those who grow them cannot afford them for themselves and their families. Yet unbelievably, the vegan-saboteurs still claim the moral high ground – how exactly?

Despite their attempts to intimidate and threaten, and possibly because of that, the evening was a roaring success. Well-attended by sociable, dignified, respectful people from all walks of life. Over 40 diners enjoyed Ralph Skripek (The Wild Chef)’s stunning menu which included rabbit, mallard, venison and wild boar as follows:

With renewed vigour from the intimidation outside, the auction raised over £2,000 – money which will go directly towards the cost of a number of shooting experiences for youngsters in 2020. The shooting simulator was well used all evening as was the dance floor, and much thanks must go to the evening’s sponsors.

Derby Museum staff were incredible in their continued professionalism and ability to consistently help guests to feel safe inside the museum after the hostility encountered getting to and into the venue.

Some guests were followed through the streets and intimidated on their way to the museum; others, including myself had members of the angry mob shouting in their faces as they tried to go about their evening peacefully and lawfully, on a public highway, in the United Kingdom.

The gentleman and his wife who left the venue at the same time as me, escorted me to their car in a secure car park, drove me to my hotel and watched as I safely went inside. I invite any sane individual to argue who, on the night, managed to claim the moral high ground. If this is all the antis can muster than their campaign has wilfully misfired.

It is good to know that in the United Kingdom , you had a successful event involving hunting and meat eating . The number of vegan lunatics and anti hunting retards in the United Kingdom is rancid . In any rational society , these " Hunt Sabs " as they proudly call their ilk , should not be allowed to have web sites and presence on media . They should be locked away somewhere , nice and dark , to be forgotten forever with the jailer throwing away the key .
These vegan filth took over India in 1972 , and banned all hunting and demonized meat eaters ( with attempts to ban meat eating , constantly being on the manifesto of many politicians) . Do not let your country fall like that .
Some of my favorite English game dishes are jugged hare , roast pheasant with bread sauce , and pan seared tenderloin of venison ( rare , if l am eating alone ; medium rare , if l have guests ) with a nice dollop of Colman's mustard and horse radish cream on the side .

It's no baloney!

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agricultural specialists seized more than 150 pounds of Mexican bologna at the El Paso, Texas entry port this week, officials announced Friday.
CBP officers selected the vehicle for a second examination and found the substance to be the contraband deli meat weighing 154 pounds.

The ugly face of emotionalism displaying its total stupidity again. And sadly, the police won't (can't) get involved. Job security, y'know. They don't want to confront any snowflakes and hurt some feelings. What a great opportunity for a little firehose drill.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
