There's a saying I've heard a number of times in various movies and TV shows.
"It's got a taste for human flesh."
This is usually followed by warnings about how the creature/beast/boy raised by wolves/whatever will never stop now that's it has this taste for the sweet succulence of human meat.
I have a problem with this. They say human meat tastes like chicken and I've seen chickens being feed to animals on TV and even at zoos.
If human flesh really does taste like chicken then what the hell are they doing giving these animals a taste for it?
The problem is that the moment these creatures get a bite of a human they stop seeing us as wonderful suppliers of chicken and start looking at us walking plucked chickens ready to eat.
