Does Anyone Know What Bush Meat ("Eran Gbe") Is Called In English?

Can anyone tell me what it's called in English. I used to eat it Nigeria, and it tastes so good. I was trying to tell one of my oyinbo friends but didn't know the English name. Help a bro out!

will these animals ever be certified safe to eat again?

they're generally an important part of the local cuisine.

although of course if they're endangered then people have to eat regular meat or fish, or go vegetarian.

in general, its called game, or wild game.

but you have to be more specific about which animal meat you mean.

which one did you eat in nigeria? Was it antelope?

Bush meat refers to meat sourced from wild animals, as opposed to meat from farm animals such as chicken, pork, beef, mutton, etc. Bush meat is referred to by the name of the animal in question. So to get antelop meat, you ask for "antelop" or "antelop meat". Other common ones include grass-cutter, deer, wild hog, rabbit, porcupine, etc.

I really need to know the name of the specific animal whose meat is called bush meat. Or is the specific animal called "bush meat?" I thought that it was just colloquially referred to as bush meat, and that there was a specific name to which the animal is referred. Thanks anyways.
