A groundbreaking new TV series is asking families to choose between eating meat and the life of their beloved family pets –  Putting a face on your meal.

It is one of the most shocking ultimatums ever delivered on television. In this groundbreaking series, a family of unrepentant carnivores have to let an animal they have adopted and grown to love go for slaughter if they refuse to stop eating meat — they will be asked to cook and eat it.  They will also be asked to

With experts saying that we have to eat less meat to stave off climate change, Channel 4 has made the dilemma stomach-churningly stark. Four heavy meat-eating families have to take home and look after the “animal which ends up most often on their plates”.

“It is not sex or drugs anymore. Meat is becoming the next taboo,” the influential founder of The Wit database added.  “The question they are asking is how can you cuddle your dog while you are putting another animal in the oven?”

In the first episodes of “Meat the Family”, that involves a lamb, a pig, a chicken and a calf. “Meat eating families have to treat this animal like a member of the family for three weeks.”

“Then in the end they have to decide whether they put it in the oven” or whether it goes to an animal sanctuary.

Channel 4 said the three-hour-long shows will confront “the reality of an animal’s journey from field to plate.”

“Why do we find it acceptable to eat a lamb but we wouldn’t eat our pet dog? Could you go back to meat once you’ve put a name and face to a meal?”
