No. I’m a pseudo-vegetarian, but my standard reasons for being one wouldn’t really apply in this case - instead I’d be ashamed that I was eating viable mammoth DNA. I’d like to see these guys make a comeback, because woolly mammoths are awesome. I’d also like some glyptodons and giant ground sloths.
I assume you are speaking here of those political type vegetarians who don’t eat meat because of a conscious objection to animal practices. I can’t imagine why a vegetarian who refrains for health or taste reasons would object, as I don’t, though I’m more fishatarian. :P (I just really hate the taste of all kinds of meat except for fish so I don’t eat it. Though the attitudes vegans have make me want to become a cannibal.)
I must admit, I’d be curious as to what Woolly Mammoth tastes like.
It’d be kind of cool if they had KFP in prehistoric times.
I would absolutely eat it. I hear it tastes like elephant, and not those bland, stringy, circus elephants either–I’m talking about serengeti-raised, grass-fed pachyderm. And shit, I’m such a nice guy that I’ll leave the marrow for you to extract the dna from.
As a side-note: I don’t think it’s necessarily going to be freezer burned. I think that comes from a cycle of freezing and thawing. Assuming these steaks have been encased in ice since death they should be freezer aisle fresh.
Seriously. And Asterix and Obelix made wild boar look way more awesome than it actually is too.
