If you’ve wondered what dead animals on the side of the road taste like, you may have a chance to find out without even getting your hands dirty.

On November 7, the Hotel Vermont, in Burlington, is hosting a dinner to celebrate local Vermont foods, which will include a few of those that met their end during a poorly-timed road crossing, reports WPTZ, a local NBC affiliate.

“Wild About Vermont” will include dishes of walleye and lake trout from Lake Champlain, deer, bear, moose and muskrat,” plus three animals, as yet unidentified, to be provided by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife agency after they meet their demise on the roadside.

“You can choose what you want to eat,” Chef Doug Paine told WPTZ. “We’re not going to force anyone to eat muskrat if they don’t feel like it, but it will be offered to everyone.”
