Liverpool, Jan 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It came as a shock to the animal lovers of England, when Captive Animals’ Protection Society (CAPS) released photographs as an evidence, to show that animals are killed in Knowsley Safari Park and their carcasses are left to rot for more than a week. The shocking photographs show a bison and a young deer left out in the open and a baboon somehow stuffed in the bin bag. The law enforcement officials are presently investigating the matter as this kind of conduct is completely against the regulations.
The disturbing photographs were taken by Knowsley Safari Park’s former photographer Penny Boyd. The photographer also complained to the local council citing her concern about the killings and disposals of such endangered species. Knowsley Safari Park’s General Manager David Ross issued a statement regarding the complaints which stated that Knowsley Council which inspects the park regularly have investigated the matter with their co-operation. The statement also reads that all the complaints are taken care of and new produces have already been implemented. General Manager David Ross, however, denied all the allegations by Penny Boyd.
Penny Boyd, on the other hand told a reputed media source that Knowsley Safari Park’s authorities keep zookeepers who are untrained. She said that it was the “last straw” that made her resign. In her interview, she narrated how she woke up one morning to find an antelope ‘being downed’ by a gunshot wound made by an untrained zoo keeper. The photographer said that “culling” is used in the zoo as a part of training and it is not carried out in a kind and “humane” way.
