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.
According to eyewitnesses reindeer Bjorn was nearly hit by a bus; that could have led to a very different story maybe including human casualties as well as Bjorn.
The event was being staged by the Animal Company; their director commented that Bjorn was captured within 10 minutes and that he is 'fine and 'resting'.
He praised the animal's trainers saying that their training had paid off and ensured that Bjorn was returned safe and sound quickly.
Another representative of Animal Company said reindeer are 'flight' animals by nature; she said they are fine in a pen but when 'free' of any tether run off.
The Nottingham Post has quite a few comments from locals including this from Gemma Green, who lives in nearby Hasting Street and saw the animal galloping past her house on Sunday afternoon.
"I was putting some Christmas cards up in the window and just saw it come charging down the street," she said. "Then I saw a group of people following it. It was quite strange. It's like the scene from Arthur Christmas where Santa loses his reindeer. I thought I was seeing things at first. "My partner was out walking the dog and he had to move out the way because it came charging past him."
It all sounds a rather surreal experience.
According to BBC News "A Tesco spokesman said they are "pleased he was back in time to help Santa with some important deliveries this week" but that sounds more like a 'Scrooge# moment from the supermarket giant.
The current standard practice is to prescribe antibiotics for many wounds including burns before a diagnosis is confirmed. This is because removing dressings too soon can be painful for the patient and increase the amount of scarring.
Enter smart dressing.
Monday BBC News reports about smart dressing:
It works by releasing fluorescent dye from tiny capsules when toxins are given out by bacteria in a wound.
Leading the project into smart dressings is Dr Toby Jenkins, reader in biophysical chemistry at Bath; the research team has been awarded almost £1m by the Medical Research Council and it sounds like this time it may be money well spent.
Tests into the actual dressings continue with protoypes.
According to Mashable "One in four staff at the cafes used to be homeless, and all profits from the business go to a number of charities."

He was there one and a half hours before being arrested; questioned later on the cause of his protest the BBC reports "Pavlensky said his "Fixation" act was a metaphor for apathy in Russia".
Sunday was chosen as the day of protest as it was Police Day in Russia. "Pavlensky said in a statement: "When the authorities turn the country into one big prison, openly robbing the populace and channelling funds to increase and enrich the police and other security agencies, society accepts arbitrariness and, having forgotten its advantage in numbers, brings the triumph of the police state closer through its inaction.""
Mr Pavlensky could be re-arrested as earlier documents presented to a judge were deemed invalid. Footage of his brutal protest quickly appeared online but was blocked by state authorities. You may still find clips online though."
In 2014 Pavlensky was charged "with vandalising a historic bridge in the centre of St Petersburg, where he burned stacks of tyres to imitate street scenes from the Ukrainian capital when president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in February 2014."
Other actions have included wrapping himself in barbed wire and cutting off his earlobe! He also sewed his mouth shut in protest of the incarceration of a Russian punk band.
The Calvert Journal carried an interview with Pavlensky in late 2014 titled "Acts of resistance: Pyotr Pavlensky on performance art as protest."
He will view any legal action or court trial that ensues from his actions as a continuation of the performance.
[He already faces a jail term for a protest in St Petersburg]
