After being banned in Ireland on March 20 1973, a cut version was passed in 1979 and theatrically released in 1980. This edited:
Modern video releases are uncut with an 18 certificate.
- the scene in which a shepherd goes to see a doctor and tells him how he has fallen in love with a sheep. The line, "the greatest lay I ever had" was removed.
- The bread intercourse scene was removed entirely.
