    You need to boil the carcass to release the hair follicles. This is done in order to make it easier to pull out the hair; same principle as plucking a chicken. Not all the hairs can be pulled out using this method and that is why the carcass was put over an open flame; in order to burn off the remaining hair.

    tell me how many times have you bought a shaved chicken then?

    What does that have to do with it? Oh! I know what you mean, because I don't ask mindless questions with obvious answers? now I understand how you came to that conclusion...With the exception of Bangers this applies to 90% of Thailand that's why..

    hey did Momo find a new way to skirt the Mods here? this can't be just an apparition...

    Nah, they stink. at least the ones i saw did. they weren't in the wild, just in a big cage. ugly as well. red eyes, big teeth, greasy, big whiskers.
    When we used to do wild pigs we would use a spoon to scrape the hair off.

    That is just way too much information.

    I was taking the piss about shaving the carcass..that thought wouldn't even cross my mind, as I wouldn't kill it in the first place.

    ^ I dunno. I think I'm with Phuketbound on this. I don't think I could. I've been veggie before - I'm sure there are plenty of grasses, leaves, berries etc to eat if your life depended on it. Lord knows, the Thais seem to find edible veggies everywhere they go. I'd rather learn how to find them than pluck a chicken or remove hair (by whatever method) from a civet cat.

    In fairness, pigs stink too and we happily eat them.

    Only because of the way we humans keep them. Pigs are exceptionally clean animals left to their own devices.

    Just pour some hot water, no need to 'boil' the animal.
    Birds are plucked, other animals shaved.

    FFS skin the thing.

    Plucking and shaving is a waste of the fur and skin and it's obvious from the photos those people desperately need new clothes.

    yah that's what I was suggesting, the ones he smelled must have been lying in their own feces and urine in their small cages poor things, their natural odor is not supposed to be considered offensive if not pungent..

    Im sure the cage wasnt clean but to set the record straight they were up in the branches, not laying in their own excrement.
    The smell was like nothing i have smelled before. it wasnt urine, shit, popcorn, or cornchips. it was bizarre and carried thruout the area.
    It wasnt a small cage either.

    In case you were wondering where you could pick up civet "infused" fragrances just look here: Civet smells

    Pure civet, undiluted, is quite a terrible smell. It's intensely fecal and animalic. When diluted, it smells better. And of course in perfumes only a very low concentration is used. When diluted is smells sweet and warm, a bit like beeswax, but more animalic (as the scent of animal hair). It really helps to deepen the florals and add sweetness and accentuate their indolic (i.e. fecal...) qualities, which make the florals smell more erotic. Of course this has to be done most subtley.


    Of all the perfumes I smelled, the ones that had the most intense civet notes were these classics in pure parfums:
    No. 5 (my favourite for civet note)
    Joy
    Narcisse Noir
    I also heard plenty of civet mentions of Jicky in parfum, but I haven't had the honour to try this yet.

    Interesting thought- might it be more profitable for the villagers to farm Civet for their, erm, civet than to scoff them?

    that's Eco-capitalist thinking worthy of green, but it's far too visionary and sensible for it to be applied here unless some well to do farang investor comes along to see it through..all they can see is their next meal...

    know any???

    Hunter gatherers are not the most prevelant part of Thai society. No need to worry any more 'cause they ate most of it. That's why they grow rice and husband pigs and chickens. They adapted...too late. BTW, how many wild animals can be hunted for food in whatever country you come from eh?
