Anderson: 'I've Drunk The Blood Of Goats And Lambs'

Actress GILLIAN ANDERSON felt nauseous after tasting the blood of goats and lambs as part of a Kenyan tribal ritual. The 38-year-old THE X FILES star drank the blood from a hole in the creatures' necks as part of a Masai tribal ceremony, during a visit to Africa, but she's not keen to repeat the experience. The actress - also an animal rights campaigner - says, "You crouch down and drink it straight off its neck. They pull the skin away and then you suck the hole. Goat is better than lamb. Lambs have a lot more fat on them, so the blood is very gloopy. I didn't feel particularly good after that."
