Pulverizing the Puffin

When popular tv chef Gordon Ramsay killed and ate a puffin on air, outrage hit Channel 4 and Ofcom. But the agency cleared the star of The F Word; apparently killing the cute little bird and munching it on camera doesn't qualify as a breach since it happened in Iceland where the animals aren't protected. Meanwhile, Patrick Barkham comments that even if puffins are tasty, "murdering your meat" is probably not a segment calculated to raise the ratings.
