Host Chris Packham said soccer player Kurt Zouma should work in an animal shelter as punishment for attacking his cat.
The West Ham star, 27, last week pleaded guilty to kicking and slapping a pet in his home.
Packham said it is difficult to penalize a footballer financially because of their huge fortune.
But he added that it might be possible to make a movie about Zouma working in an RSPCA rehabilitation center for 30 days to show how sorry he is.
“I’d love to see him now play an important role in animal welfare – he can turn things around,” says Packham.
“He should have said, ‘I’m really sorry and to prove that I’m going to play an animal rights role. ”

Yoan Zouma, 24, who plays for Dagenham and Redbridge, has pleaded guilty to one count of aiding, abetting, advising or soliciting his brother to commit an offence.
He filmed the shocking attack in February and the pair will be sentenced this week.
Packham, 61, is the vice-president of the RSPCA Vice President and said West Ham’s decision to have Zouma play Watford on the day the footage of the incident was revealed was “disgusting”.
The animal rights campaigner added: ‘West Ham made a big mistake and so did his manager.
The presenter, who returned to the screen ahead of Springwatch tonight on BBC 2 (MON), added: “It is understandable that many people see footballers as role models, and I think therefore football players. rock has to embrace the responsibility that comes with that.
“Take this opportunity, this young man failed to do it.

“I think there was a perception at first: ‘Forgive him, he just smacked a cat’ about that. Well, he did it in the wrong country because the uproar that resulted from him beating a cat was huge.
“I am delighted that the RSPCA was able to take this to court to ensure that it gets the public attention it deserves and that it sends a clear message to those in charge in life that Animal rights are also huge. like anything else. “
The RSPCA will receive donations as part of the latest Omaze house draw for a £3.5million Cotswold home.
