    Reality TV for sheep





    Animal rights activists in Croatia have blasted a new reality show on the web where viewers vote on which sheep to save from slaughter.

    In the show, shown on www.stado.org, seven sheep in a house in Zagreb are filmed non-stop as famous writers come in and read their works to them.

    Viewers then vote on which of the sheep is thrown out of the house. After the 'eviction' the sheep has to be 'adopted' by a viewer or it is sent straight to the slaughterhouse.

    Activists from the group Friends of Animals said the reality show was "scandalous" and that people were being pressured into adopting a sheep just to save it from slaughter.
