Sir Trevor McDonald has come under fire in a number of animal cruelties after attending a camel wrestling event in an ITV program.
Sir Trevor discovers camel wrestling in Turkey during an episode of The Secret Mediterranean With Trevor McDonald.
But animal rights campaigns beat ITV up to "legitimize" animal cruelty by showing the broadcaster who attended the event.
The camels are tied up and pulled into an arena where they fight in front of a cheering crowd, the mirror reported.
ITV was beaten up by animal rights activists for "legitimizing" cruelty in the broadcast of Sir Trevor McDonald, who attends a "camel wrestling" event in a program (above).
The camels are dressed in robes and are seen tied up before being taken to an arena where they fight in front of a crowd (image).
As a result, Sir Trevor says that it took more than 12 men to separate the camels when they thought the fight was over.
As two camels wrestle, he says, “There would be no tears or running away in this battle. The spectators expected a fight to the end. & # 39;
Sir Trevor said the camels' behavior in the program was "natural" and caused outrage among activists.
An animal rights organization argued that the behavior could not be normal since the animals were "specially" bred for the event.
The Ethical Bucket List told the mirror: “The animals are dressed in robes and are led into the arena to fight. I cannot understand how this can be called "natural".
"Let us not forget that dogs sometimes fight each other naturally, but we would never promote this as a tourist event."
Sir Trevor McDonald (pictured) has come under fire in the series of animal cruelties because he said the wrestling event showed the camels' "natural behavior."
An animal welfare organization said that cruelty to animals had been "scrutinized" and the broadcast of the event was only used to "legitimize and normalize" it
It added that cruelty to animals has disappeared "under the radar" and the broadcast of the event only serves to "legitimize and normalize" it.
The Ethical Bucket List states: "The prime-time legitimation on TV is irresponsible and can very well lead to people becoming immune to the telltale signs of cruelty to animals."
Camel wrestling is a sport in which two male camels fight, usually after a female camel is led in front of them in heat.
It is a popular form of traditional sport in Turkey and is most commonly seen in the Aegean region of the country.
Competitions in the Camel Wrestling League are held under strict regulations to protect the welfare of animals that, according to Go Turkey Tourism, are only allowed to wrestle in a 10 or 15 minute match per day.
A camel can win the match in three ways. by the other camel withdrawing, screaming or falling.
