Gordon Ramsay slammed for shooting dead mountain goat, cooking it for three hours and eating it: 'Shame on you'
Ramsay was seen using a rifle-styled firearm to kill the animal in the latest episode of National Geographic series 'Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted'
In a brand new episode of National Geographic series 'Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted', the celebrity chef was seen shooting dead a mountain goat, cooking it for almost three hours, and then eating, sending quite a few people into a flurry of outrage.
In last week's episode shot in Peru, the world-renowned chef revealed that he thought guinea pigs taste "delicious". In this episode, Ramsay picked up a rifle-styled firearm and killed the animal in keeping with the tradition of the Maori tribe in New Zealand, Metro reported.
"My heart’s beating like Big Ben," Gordon remarked after taking down his target. "Your adrenaline is pumping. This is not wrapped up in cling film on a supermarket shelf. This is proper outdoor hunting."
He later placed the goat in a dugout pit, threw in some bay leaves, and roasted the goat in the ground for almost three hours. The 52-year-old chef served accompaniments with the dish, including a wild salad, seaweed potatoes, and a fuchsia berry chutney.
That said, some viewers did not seem happy with the scenes.
“Yes National Geographic, keep profiting from this planet, keep sending these ‘cooks’ … around the world to keep killing all types of animals," one commenter scorned on Twitter. "Not enough to kill … pigs, chickens, goats. All in the name of $$$$$$$. Shame on you.”
Meanwhile, others praised Gordon for his efforts, saying, "Well done, food the way it’s meant to be straight from nature, fresh and good to eat."
Ramsay grabbed headlines in February last year after mocking animal rights organization PETA, news.com.au reported.
“I’m a member of Peta! People eating tasty animals," he wrote on Twitter.
Shortly after, he revealed he was giving vegan meals a shot.
“Going to give this #vegan thing a try … Yes guys you heard that right," he told his millions of followers, uploading alongside a picture of a vegetable-based pizza.

Gordon kicked off his six-part National Geographic series last month as he was seen hunting eels with his bare hands and hanging off a cliff to collect cactus worms.
The widely popular chef is seen roaring through valleys, diving into oceans, hiking through forests and scaling mountains as he travels from Peru, Laos, and Morocco to Hawaii, Alaska, and New Zealand.
