Meet the only person in Britain who doesn’t need to stockpile food or panic buy because he eats – ROADKILL.
Wacky Arthur Boyt, 80, is famed for dining on run-over animals and regularly eats rabbits, and badgers, and even washed up marine life like whales and dolphins.
Because of his age, Arthur is facing the possibility of being quarantined due to the coronavirus outbreak – but he isn’t worried about stocking up.
He said his freezer is still full of meat he’s collected from the side of the road, and he already has enough rat and deer meat to last him.
Retired Arthur, from Davidstow, Cornwall, said: “Of course I’m aware of the coronavirus, I could be told in a week that I have to stay inside for a few months.
“I’m still collecting road kill, I ate two rats the other day – they were delicious.
“I had a roe deer too, I found it on the side of the road. Someone from my choir told me it was on the A30 near Launceston.
“I’ve heard people are stockpiling in super markets, we shan’t be doing that but we need toilet rolls.
“I don’t need to stockpile because there’s plenty to eat here in my freezer.”
Over the years, Arthur has amassed lots of meat in his pantry.
His biggest ‘catch’ came in 2016 when a massive sperm whale washed up on a nearby beach and Arthur stuffed his freezer with enough to last for years.
Arthur has been eating roadkill since the age of 13, and regularly collects creatures he finds dead – sometimes run-over on the road, others washed up on the beach.
He turns the meat into casseroles, stews, roast dinners and curries, and collects bones for home ornaments and trinkets.
