Viewers were left horrified after an owl swallowed a mouse whole on The Late Late Show tonight.
An owl was brought on the show tonight as host Ryan Tubridy called on viewers to help name the Late Late’s iconic owl, which is featured in the opening credits.
The audience and viewers at home got to watch the stunning bird glide across the RTÉ studio, but then the cameras caught a pretty unfortunate moment as the owl was treated to a mouse – which it casually swallowed whole.
And viewers quickly took to Twitter to express their disgust…
