The star recorded an episode of ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ in the Cloghane area last month.
Bear Grylls told The New York Post they found a dead sheep on the West Kerry hillside and thought they would get some meat for dinner.
He claims the sheep was filled with maggots, which Grylls thought would make for a backup meal.
The celebrity survivalist said Courteney Cox reportedly e-mailed him a week later, quipping she could be potentially suffering post-traumatic stress following the experience.
The new season of ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ premiered on NBC in the US this week.
