Yes, but why???: Haven't heard of any regulations against the eating of raw lamb, but why would one not cook his meat. Undercooked meat has bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are bad for people. One can enjoy a healthier lifestyle by cooking to death all those "germs", before eating.

Not recommended.: Eating meats raw can expose you to a number of pathogens. Although lamb & mutton can be cooked with some internal pinking, one should never eat ground lamb/ mutton that is pink (raw). Ground meats need to reach 160°F internally & other types of cuts require a minimum of 145°F internally & then to sit for several minutes before cutting.
