Last week’s episode featured a scene in Morocco where Clarkson constructed a set of scales to compare the weight of three convertibles, using a set of animals including cows, goats and camels as a counter balance. As you would expect, the animals became difficult to manage and wouldn’t stand still. The solution? Slaughter them. “I think it’s better if I kill them. If they’re dead, they won’t mind,” Clarkson said in the episode. Cue a scene of animal carcasses being unceremoniously dumped onto the scale. “This apparent senseless slaughter of animals on our TV screens is unacceptable,” Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley said in reaction to the barbaric scene.
