Making money from… roadkill!

June 13, 2007

One man in the UK has found an unusual way to make a profit from animals squashed flat by passing traffic…

He had a special hotline set up, so people could call him when they see a dead animal on the road. He collects the animal, skins it – eats the meat – then collects the hide.

He’ll then put it in a frame – and sell it! He’s currently selling a squashed hare and fox in a frame for £35,000 (English pounds) – that’s just under $69,000 US dollars.

I don’t know how many he’s sold though… (My guess is – not many.)

Ice cream truck… and more!

How’s this for an interesting and unusual business idea?

One lady, Leyla Safai, has taken the old idea of an ice-cream truck – and expanded it! She thought to herself – why should an ice-cream truck limit itself to selling only ice-cream?

So, with her van, she sells ice-cream, toys, and also art!
