He posted the image on Facebook December 31, 2015, with a caption that read ""The Kyrgyz people queuing out of the door for there (sic) special delicacy the horse’s penis!!!""
He quickly deleted the post and offered his apology for the caption but he is still toast.
The official line from the authorities is that he is being deported as his work documentation was not up to scratch.
However most people believe it is due to the horse's penis reference which did receive an angry response on local radio.
According to BBC News "the post had caused a lot of discontent and resentment on the part of local staff, who demanded respect for the traditions of the people of Kyrgyzstan, as well as an apology from the mine's management company."
Scotland has some strange dining traditions such as deep-fried Mars chocolate bars and haggis but I doubt they would be so sensitive.
However Kyrgyzstan is not Scotland or the UK and we should respect local traditions and sensibilities when possible.
So if Kyrgyzstan is part of your travel plans don't make fun of the food.
The son named as 33-year-old Christopher Morey has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his father; was it self-defence or motivated by something else.
Morey is being held on $1 million bail which seems an unusual step in the USA.
Here in the UK we have become used to reading or hearing news from across the pond about shooters who escape justice because they claimed to have killed in self-defence.
The father shot and killed three people, Morey's 54-year-old bedridden mother, his 48-year-old girlfriend and 27-year-old Ernesto Calzadilla who was visiting, before the gun was wrestled from him and he was subsequently shot dead.
A Go Fund Me page has been launched to help pay for funeral costs for Calzadilla, a father of a young child.
Saturday it has been widely reported "Obama to announce executive action on guns" and you have to say 'at last. However the powerful gun lobby in the USA will fight any restrictions tooth and nail and in a presidential election year the Democrats and the Republicans will not want to make waves.
That animal's owner, pig farmer Jing Guanglan, decided the birth of that little piggy was a good luck sign; he chose to embrace its birth by classing the creature as a good luck charm and money-maker.
Just how he decided on the good luck is not clear. It could be a lucky break for the pig though who may escape a deadly kitchen fate.
However the two-headed pig was more like a conjoined creature and struggled to survive from day one.
Guanglan however could only see the poor creature as a cash creator that would attract publicity at a price.
Sadly deformed creatures are popular in Chin and can be big money-spinners although their lifespan tends to be brief.
According to the Daily Mirror "Experts say the male piglet has a rare genetic defect that only affects one in 100,000."
Its owner ignored the fact that the poor creature could hardly move about as its two-heads are such a weight. The two-headed pig was born with four eyes and two snouts.
Are these strange mutant animal births specific to China? If so could it be down to how they are raised and fed? If so what does that tell us about the creatures that appear normal and survive before being killed for food across the world?
After all, we are what we eat!
pDo you sometimes feel like a headless chicken? You know what that means-running around blindly getting nowhere fast.
That common saying has its roots in fact. And fact is sometimes stranger than fiction.
Chickens have been known to have some life after head loss but Thursday a story about a headless chicken that lived a further 18 months is amazing, shocking, sad and grotesque.
According to the story it happened 70 years ago today in Colorado in the USA.
Before you dismiss the story as nonsense the decapitated bird became famous and was called 'Mike'.
It was September 10, 1945, when a farming couple, Lloyd Olsen and his wife Clara, were killing birds-Lloyd was the executioner chopping the birds' heads off and Clara faced the task of cleaning what was left.
But 'Mike' refused to give up the ghost and the Olsens decided to help him live
According to the family the headless chicken was "placed in an old apple box on the farm's screened porch for the night" and was still alive and kicking the following morning.
Although most of the chicken's head was in a jar, most of his brain stem and one ear was left on his body. Since most of a chicken's reflex actions are controlled by the brain stem Mike was able to remain quite healthy-Mike the headless chicken.
The rooster quickly became a legend in its own lifetime.
Taken up by a travelling sideshow its fame quickly spread.
Stories include university scientists removing the heads of many other chickens to see if any others survived; well it was 1945 / 1946. But even at that time 'Mike's popularity and that of his owners was not universal and one compared the Olsens to Nazis.
If you are wondering how the chicken was sustained the owners dropped liquid food and water straight into his oesophagus.
Tragedy struck, or was it a blessing, when the syringe used to clean mucus from his 'throat' was not to hand. Mike choked to death.
Mike survived the initial beheading when a blood clot formed and stopped the bird bleeding to death.
The lucky or unlucky cut depending on your point of view enabled life to continue.
For the Olsens, a poor farming family, Mike was a financial success at least in the short term.
