Colonel Townsend Whelen stated that "it is all food". Teddy Roosevelt ate things in the Amazon expedition from jaguars to monkeys. It is all what is accepted as Indians ate dog as one of their prize feasts and the Comanche's most prized delicacy was a foal cooked in it's own placenta. The Scots eat stomach linings and the English eat neck glands.
I am reminded of Teddy Roosevelt in his books on the American West. If you read them from front to end, you find that he was fussy in 1880 in stating the flesh was not worth eating on some animals, and it was just back straps and tongues. By the time he was finished on the Elk Horn Ranch in North Dakota, he was eating the last scrap of every animal which was brought in.
You have to understand that beef and pork is castrated. So if you are eating an old male fox, which has been fermenting in it's hide, it is going to taste like an old bull buffalo which did not have it's hide pealed quick enough.
Proper meat preparation, removing fat as in beaver, letting it soak in salt or soda to leach the blood out, will turn most meat into something savory.
In closing, we raise our own chickens and butcher. Sometimes though we have to purchase the ones available in the stores which most people are eating. The scent of them cooking in a pressure cooker makes me almost gag. You can smell how long that meat was hung in the plant, the chemicals it was washed in and how long it has been in the display case. It is worse than road kill. That is what most people are eating and they think it is good food.
Food is all perspective.
