Countryfile viewers were disgusted after a guest said she cooked up a pie full of "oven ready squirrel".
The woman, named Kath, told Sunday night's instalment of the BBC show that she had whipped up the pie for a competition – and viewers were not impressed.
Kath said she had won a gold award at the British Pie Awards for her squirrel dish.
Walking presenter Margherita Taylor through it, she explained: "I'd got some oven ready squirrels from a farmer's market, just because I'd never seen them before.
"And I just thought, I'll do something with these. They ended up going in a pie. I just wanted to step outside the box."
Kath also made a "roadkill" pie of game and revealed she uses a toy tractor to make tyre track imprints on the crust.
Plenty of people watching posted messages on social media to share their thoughts on the segment.
"Squirrel pie and roadkill pie on #Countryfile tonight – seriously?!" asked one person.
"Utterly gross. Why give these people airtime?"
One person shared of GIF of someone gagging, emblazoned with the words: "I just threw up in my mouth a little bit."
"Squirrel in a pie? So cruel," one person tweeted.
"Yuk that's enough to put me off eating anything that's called Roadkill Pie," said another.
One viewer questioned whether roadkill should even be consumed.
"I thought #roadkillwas not meant to be eaten because of the hormones that shoot through the animal's body when it is killed," they said.
Several viewers also expressed surprise that "oven ready squirrel" was even a thing.
"Oven ready squirrels? That's not a phrase I thought I'd ever hear!" one said.
"How much did those oven ready squirrels cost at the farm shop?" asked another.
One viewer couldn't resist a little joke about the dish.
"OMG – squirrel pie! Warning – may contain nuts!" they quipped.
Another viewer warned: "We will all be living on squirrel pie if the cost of living goes much higher."
