Gordon Ramsay Upsets the Vegans and Antis with a Goat Hunt

Comments Comments

Gordon Ramsey has never been one to shy away from an argument when it comes to hunting and consuming your hunted food. He's openly criticised vegetarian and vegan diets, pulling no punches when it comes to these topics.

He's been exploring the world while cooking for his new TV series on National Geographic.

And during one of the most recent Uncharted episodes, Gordon Ramsay unleashed his inner hunter-gatherer as he shot and then ate a goat in New Zealand.

The episode set the vegans and antis into a hissy fit as Gordon went about showing viewers where their meat can be sourced.

During the episode, the cooking specialist went hunting to follow the tradition of the Maori people. In one scene, Gordon is

filmed shooting the goat from its steep hill. 

He later said: 'My heart's beating like Big Ben. Your adrenaline is pumping.

'This is not wrapped up in cling film on a supermarket shelf. This is proper outdoor hunting.'

Gordon cooked the goat in bay leaves, roasted in a dug out pit in the ground for 2.5 hours, he served it with seaweed potatoes, a wild salad and fuchsia berry chutney.

The famous chef started his series in Peru and will go on to visit Laos, Hawaii and Alaska.

However, despite the majority of viewers left 'drooling' over the dish, some fans were left shocked over the brutality of hunting the goat.

With one angry fan, Lourdes Caballero, tweeting: 'Yes NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY KEEP PROFITING FROM THIS PLANET, KEEP SENDING THESE "COOKS" GUYS AROUND THE WORLD TO KEEP KILLING ALL TYPES OF ANIMALS.

'Not ENOUGH to KILL CAWS, PIGS, CHICKENS, DUCKS, GOATS. All in the name of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. SHAME ON YOU.'

MailOnline has contacted Gordon's representative for comment.

Ramsay have been a vocal critic of plant-based diets in the past, saying he would dress up as a vegan for Halloween, and would never go vegetarian.

Gordon once told the Mirror that his children going vegetarian would be his 'biggest nightmare' and that he would 'sit on the fence and electrocute them' if they made that decision.

He also berated Girls Aloud star Cheryl for following a strict vegetarian diet, and once tweeted that he was 'allergic to vegans' and that he was 'a member of PETA! People eating tasty animals.'
