Craving roadkill

Avocado and hot sauce? Soil? Nope, this pregnant mom craved roadkill.

Craving roadkill

Alison Brierley is a professional artist and taxidermist and she's quite used to handling roadkill. Once she fell pregnant, her 'love' for roadkill took on a new dimension when she started craving it.

I've heard of some disgusting cravings, like cat food or raw rice but never have I heard of someone wanting roadkill.

Alison told Mail Online, "Usually I eat really healthily but now I'm pregnant I get strong cravings for roadkill. It's more gamey than other meat and I love the taste."

How does she know what it tastes like? Alison and her husband, Marcus Speer, admit to having eaten roadkill before and they've even tried venison.

Weird cravings

Golden syrup in boerewors! - Estelle van Rensburg

I chewed clothes with all my pregnancies. - Lulama Mdlikiva
