French voice

Quote "I learnt how to slaughter animals from the peasants in Châteauroux and I still do it when I go to visit friends who live in the countryside." It may be of little comfort to vegetarians, but at least the animals die with the poetry of that mellifluous French voice in their ears. "Before killing something I always talk to it," he says, sounding like a Gallic Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. "An animal that's been caressed before it's killed dies peacefully and its muscles don't contract with adrenalin. If an animal is slaughtered in a stress-free way it tastes better." -- from Tim Atkin's interview with Gérard Depardieu
