Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has come under fire from animal rights campaigners after eating a snake heart in his latest TV show.
The TV personality was filmed downing the heart of a cobra in a snake restaurant in Vietnam as part of his series Gordon's Great Escape, which airs in the U.K. on Monday (16May11).
Ramsay is warned he will feel the organ beating in his stomach for several minutes afterwards as he admits, "The thought of eating that turns my stomach."
The episode has not gone down well with animal rights activists at U.K. charity Animal Aid, who have branded Ramsay's stunt "cruel, attention-seeking (and) sick".
Animal Aid director Andrew Tyler adds, "It's an awful and vicious thing to do to an animal and Gordon Ramsay is complicit in it.
"He's made sick entertainment out of this animal's suffering to make himself look interesting but I think he's just an inadequate creature."
A spokesperson for the Channel 4 network insists, "Viewers are made aware before the start of the programme that some sequences feature animal slaughter."

How silly, I hate animal cruelty I watched this and didnt see any. that country eats those sorts of things so what, the animal was not in distress they made a meal out of the animal, nothing is wasted maybe the uk should think a little like this with all the wasted food we have.

kwjd,You are,of course, given the right to speak your mind. But what I believe is that you have failed to understand that Gordon Ramsay was in another country, eating & drinking foods & beverages that are indigenous to the peoples of that particular country. In some instances it would be considered an insult to the people of a country had he not eaten what they themselves may have believed to the the best of the best food available. Offered to Mr. Ramsay as a show of respect. In order for Mr. Ramsay to have a TRUE experience,he must live as the people of the country do. No 5 star Donald Trump luxuries for this very, very real MAN. Mr Ramsay continues to grow as a chef and as a man by doing the Great Escapes. I can not wait for them to air here in the U.S...where we are all judged as being the laughing stock of the world, fat, lazy and spineless. Gordon Ramsay takes some of us, like myself, who are beddriden with incurable illnesses to places I myself shall not ever have the opportunity to see. Thank you Mr. Ramsay as well as Mr Anthony Bordain, both of whom I find myself living vicariously, breathlessly, and joyfully with each of you from my hospital bed. May God bless & keep both of you & yours in His care.

I fully agree with (wildifire & kwjd), everyone is entitled to their own opinion so the views from animal rights groups are respected BUT i have to disagree that Gordon Ramsay was eating the food to "make him look interesting", the guy has numerous Michellin stars to his name and does not need to look any more interesting than he already is. He was simply eating local, traditional food of the country. The snake was in no distress, wasnt made to suffer any longer than it needed to. I see that Animal Rights campaigners will jump onto anything to try and corrupt the views of the neutral viewer, it is these sort of people that would down right offend the locals in countries like Vietnam, Cambodia etc with there obscure views.
