Eating dingoes

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Imagine if every plate of lamb or sheep meat came with a side dish of dingo. Admittedly, it’s a rather grim image for a non-meat eater to contemplate. But, as I explain here, the eating of sheep also brings with it the incorporation of dingoes, not necessarily ‘good to eat’ but sacrificed in the name of those deemed ‘good to eat’ who are. This raises the question of what we mean when we say that something or someone is ‘good to eat?’
