Louise Gray’s first kill is a disaster. She injures a rabbit and thinks it has died in agony. But the experience teaches her a lesson and, when she subsequently finds the extraordinary ‘rabbit with a white blaze’, she vows to do its death justice and continue her quest to find out what it really means to kill and eat animals. Inspired by the hand-wringing at middle class dinner parties, where everyone claims to care about animal welfare, Louise Gray sets out to find exactly where our meat comes from. ‘The Ethical Carnivore’ takes the reader on the entire journey from field to fork, including the moment of death.
