Animals Killed And Abandoned To Rot By The Bins In A Prominent British Zoo i.e. Knowsley Safari ParkJanuary 11th, 2011 - 8:54 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
January 11, 2011 (Pen Men at Work): The Knowsley Safari Park (KSP) on English soil located in Merseyside has been berated recently subsequent to appalling pictures emerging in the Internet of animals abandoned to rot in culls there. These sickening photos had engendered an inquisition of the zoo by the governmental bureaucrats, which deemed that the zoo’s employees had infringed rules dealing with the discarding of cadavers and animal by-products. The KSP is a gigantic British reserve situated on the renowned domain of Lord Derby that lodges myriad animals such as tigers and baboons.
Policemen emerged in the KSP to scrutinize the sordid state of affairs subsequent to the zoo’s sanctioned photographer reporting that the zoo’s employees had been heartlessly firing at and exterminating animals subsequent to the animals’ population becoming so excessive that the zoo’s workforce was finding it difficult to deal with them.
58-year-old Penny Boyd, who was the KSP’s certified photographer till recently, has now resigned from her job. Boyd vocalized to the zoo’s official board that she had observed inexpert zookeepers being conferred guns to experience shooting ‘live exhibits’. Boyd has remarked that the culling represented the ultimate straw that gave birth to her resignation.
Boyd has revealed to The Sun that, on a particular morning, she had listened to a gunshot. Therefore, she ventured out to see what had occurred and witnessed a gorgeous antelope that she had known from a long time ago being smothered. Boyd has verbalized that there were two additional shots after which the antelope was killed. That sort of work, as per Boyd, should be perpetrated only by experienced folks. However, in KSP, culling, as per Boyd, was being employed as a method for training in place of being implemented in as kindhearted and compassionate a manner as possible.
Boyd has divulged that these acts were reprehensible and that she was unable to photograph adorable animals to attain for KSP constructive publicity while being conscious that some of the animals could be culled and jettisoned to rot the next day. Boyd had clicked bloodcurdling pictures of a bloodied baboon spilling out of a bin liner, a heap of massacred Sri Lankan axis deer and a deceased Pere David’s deer, which is seriously endangered.
Boyd had resided at the KSP near Liverpool for 10 years and has voiced that she acknowledged, with a heavy heart, that culling, at times, was the only way to diminish a surplus of animals.
Nonetheless, general manager, David Ross, has repudiated the accusations of sadism and voiced that some of the cadavers had been relocated to stage-manage the photographs. He has maintained that none of the cadavers photographed were of culled mammals and has verbalized that the KSP always attempted to transfer superfluous animals to other institutions. He has voiced that the photos either illustrate stillborn animals or ones that perished due to natural causes, or as a consequence of aggression. Also, some of these animals were bumped off by the vet as they were wounded gravely. As the KSP stores a massive 800 animals, some such demises are inexorable.
The KSP has now constructed an area where the deceased animals can be housed prior to being discarded. Subsequent to discussions with the Merseyside Police, the KSP has initiated a ‘gun diary’, which will catalog every occasion a firearm is employed.
