Would you still eat meat if you had to kill the animals yourself?
Probably. I've shot pigeon & pheasant and plucked, gutted and prepared/eaten them. I probably ain't gonna strangle a cow any day soon, not least because Mrs Pat would go bat-sheet about the mess, but I'm not one of those "I love chicken but I can't stand the smell/feel/sight of raw meat" types.
Where has Evel got to these days, he worked as a butcher for a while, didn't he?
