I see that horse meat is being allowed for human consumption for the first time here in Australia. See the article here. Ethically I see no problem with it as long as the horses are raised and killed humanely but I must admit it’s not something I feel a mad rush to run out and try. Yeah, I admit it, emotional associations affect my eating habits. I have similar views on eating rabbit even though rabbits are a problem pest in Australia that destroy native vegetation and out compete native animals for food. So eating wild rabbit here in Oz is a good way to help the environment. I’ve eaten it once, but oh, it was hard. Funny 21st century city girl that I am.
