Animals Killed left to rot in British Safari Park

Animals Killed left to rot in British Safari Park - A safari park tightened up practices after a former employee claimed animals had been dumped and left to rot.

Ex-official park photographer Penny Boyd took shocking pictures of the carcasses at Knowsley Safari Park, and was so concerned about what she had seen that she told Knowsley council.

Her gruesome dossier showed a dead deer, allegedly left for at least four days, another deer allegedly left in a plastic container for at least 10 days; several animal carcasses left out in the open and a bloodied baboon in a bin bag.

Yesterday, park manager David Ross said there had been a full investigation into Ms Boyd’s allegations and assured visitors “robust new procedures” were now in place concerning the storage of dead animals.

The photographs – which were taken last year – have only just emerged.

Mr Ross admitted there had been a period over the Easter holidays last year when their carcass collection, which ran twice weekly, had not taken place.

But he said the dead animals were not in view of the public and the absence of a collection had been an “exception rather than the rule”.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
