Knowsley Safari Park Makes Changes After Photographs of Carcasses Were Released

-1

Photographer Penny Boyd released photos of carcasses to the council and animal charities

What happens to animals that perish in a safari park? One ex-employee of Knowsley Safari Park took photos making the public aware of how the carcasses were disposed of. BBC News reports:

A Merseyside safari park was told to change the way it dealt with dead animals after an ex-employee released images of carcasses left in the open.

Knowsley Safari Park photographer Penny Boyd complained to the local council over what she believed was unnecessary killing of animals and their disposal.

An investigation by Knowsley Council found a breach of animal by-products regulations, which the park addressed.

In a statement, it said “robust new procedures” were now in place.

    .I don’t get it…..wouldn’t these animals just be left out in the open after death in the wild?!?! Isn’t that sort of the way nature does it? How is this in any way an “enviromental hazard”? Isn’t this simply the enviroment?!?! And how is, as the BBC article states, creating a building to store such animals better than just letting them stay out in the open to feed back into nature. Seems kind of screwy to me. Now as far as other allegations of animals being killed or whatever….that may be a breach of the law, I have no Idea…..also I have no Idea who is telling the truth, since the park claims they all died naturally, or from accidents.
