A man has sparked debate after carrying two “disgusting” aminal carcasses along one of Sydney’s main shopping streets.
A photo of the two headless and skinned animals hanging over the left shoulder of a casually dressed man on the Boulevard in Strathfield, in the west of the city, was posted on social media.
Shoppers outside a medical center and the suburban “Veggie Shed” seemed unbothered by the unusual sight.
But online opinions were divided.

The street where the animal carcasses were taken is one of the busiest in Strathfield
One man found the show “medieval,” while another called it “disgusting.”
Another man didn’t miss the opportunity to offer us a clever pun.
“Monopolize the entire trail!”
Others added some typically Australian humor.
“No wonder the flies are so bad this year.”
One man gave a simple explanation for this unusual sight: it was simply a delivery to a nearby butcher’s shop.
“The same meat transporter will go to Epping, Eastwood, Burwood and Strathfield, unless a store has an apprentice the transporter will transport it,” he wrote.
Meat bundling is the process by which a delivery driver transports carcasses from a truck to a retail butcher shop.
“I’ve seen this here since I was a kid,” said one local.
Others compared the lumper technique to other recent sights nearby.
In July, a man was seen carrying a huge pig carcass without any protective clothing.

The poster’s caption for the new photo carrying the carcass read: “We may be biased, but we think Eastwood pig carriers are superior.”
“I’m patiently waiting for the day of a photo of pig carcasses on the back of a motorcycle in Eastwood.”
” It’s disgusting. I love pigs, pigs are as smart as dogs,” replied an animal lover.
But the exact type of animal grouped together was a matter of debate.
“He’s a funny pig,” said one of them.
“He’s not a pig. A fellow lamb!’ » another added.
