Author Jeanette Winterson has caused a Twitter row after she ate the rabbit who ate her parsley.

The author - who was a vegetarian for nine years - posted a somewhat graphic picture of a carcass on her kitchen counter, with the caption: "Rabbit ate my parsley. I am eating the rabbit."


She proceeded to share pictures of the rabbit being "washed and jointed for the pot", before being cooked on the AGA with rosemary and thyme.


Next came two shots of her cat eating the entrails.

Another wrote: "How your cat and you have disappointed me @Wintersonworld ! At least the cat has an excuse. If you have to kill, why brag about it all day?"

Winterson remained defiant:
