BARCELONA – Animal lovers forced a theatre group to withdraw a dead lamb from a play about Islamic terrorism.
The Sky is too Low, written by Muslim Ahmed Ghazali, featured the carcass of a dead lamb, which was slaughtered before every performance.
When it hit the stage in Figueras, Catalonia, about 12 people objected.
They complained about the fact its neck was slit and it was left to bleed to death in the manner favoured by Halal butchers.
The objectors, supported by animal rights activists, pressed authorities to force the theatre group La Invencio Teatral to withdraw the dead animal from the performance as it broke rules for live theatre shows.
The director of the theatre group said he did not know the dead lamb was breaking theatre guidelines.
