During the episode, the cooking specialist went hunting to follow the tradition of the Maori people.

In one scene, Gordon shot dead a goat on a hill with a rifle-styled gun, he couldn’t stop swearing both before and after the hunting.

‘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 as ‘allergic to vegans’ and the he was ‘a member of PETA! People eating tasty animals.’

However, in March he announced that he had introduced a vegan roast dinner to the menu at London restaurant Bread St Kitchen. 

He posted: ‘It’s happened… the #vegan roast has landed at @breadstkitchen! #roastrevolution,’ alongside a short clip of gravy being poured into a vegan wellington.

Speaking as a guest on James Corden’s Late Late show last night, Gordon said: ‘Veganism is on the rise, we’ve got to adapt and I just have to eat a slice of humble pie.’ 

Uncharted continues on Sundays on National Geographic.
