Late Late Show viewers claim 'animal cruelty' after lamb put in carousel on live TV
Irish viewers were left feeling “uncomfortable” and “sickened” after a segment on the Late Late Show showed a lamb in a farming contraption called a Lamb Carousel.
After an entertaining interview with Ride Along 2 stars Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, a farmer was brought on the chat show but it was his lamb that took centre stage.
Viewers took to Twitter blasting the RTE show, claiming the ‘Lamb Carousel’ was uncomfortable to watch, and of course there were a few jokes too:

But some people were all for it…
People don’t understand farm life. That contraption is more comfortable for the lamb and more ergonomic for the farmer #LateLateShow

If half you do gooders had the slightest notion about farming you’d know that carousel makes necessary treatments more humane #LateLateShow“Late Late Show viewers claim ‘animal cruelty’ after lamb put in carousel on live TV” via Goss.ie
