The Road Kill cookoff in West Virginia is a contest where chefs go beyond chicken and beef to use a wide variety of natural protein sources. Would you like to try a new kind of food? Perhaps an alligator or a turtle sandwich? Reporter: Evgeny Baranov; Camera: Sergii Dogotar; Aapted by: Zdenko Novacki

Unfortunately, we can't control the wildlife and keep it from getting hurt when we drive on the roads. Things like that do happen every day and we try to make use of what we have, our natural resources.

Well, this isn’t actually roadkill. It’s animals that could be in a roadkill.

What I don’t like is the big factory farms, the CAFOs, the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, where they treat the animals really badly. They have, pigs are in pens where they don’t even have enough room to turn around. I think that’s absolutely horrible.

We are making a predator-prey chili with bear meat and venison which is deer meat, and some corn muffins.

The name of our team is ‘You hit them, we spit them’. I’m the team captain. My husband and I came all the way from Texas. It’s called ‘Hillbilly Mardi Gras Alligator and Turtle Gumbo Over Country Creamy Grits’ or ‘Creamy Country Grits’.

We come here every year. It's a neat place to try a new kind of food. I mean, you don't get alligator every day. You don't get bear every day. I mean, it's just fun.

I am moving towards being an enphomologist (entomophage), which is a person who eats insects, and I think as a society or as a country as a society, we’re moving more towards those alternate protein sources, getting away from the beef and the pork etc.

((SAMUEL DARLEY, FESTIVAL VISITOR))
I do think there are certain animals that just shouldn’t be eaten because of what they eat. But, you know, if let’s say like rats, because there’s farm raised rats, then it would be perfectly fine to eat a farm raised rat. But I wouldn’t go out to New York City, kill a rat, and start eating it.

((SANDY WALKER, FESTIVAL VISITOR))

And actually, I think it’s better to not let things go to waste. It’s wasteful to waste things. I think it’s a good way to not be a glutton, but to use things in an appropriate fashion.
