The Scottish Word: Gralloch
"Tak that ye gralloch ye."
gralloch: the disembowelling of a deer, disembowel.
"Take that! You cleaner of carcasses you."
My granny used to do this job and I often felt like the child. Although it was chickens rather than deer.
And I used to feed those chickens every day until the axe fell, one by one.
I hope respect for our fellow creatures never becomes the same as enabling every creature to live entirely in safety into old age and die a natural death.
It’s bad enough that we try to do that to ourselves.
