King Juan Carlos sacked by Spanish WWF

ousted as president of WWF Spain
After the huge embarrassment he’d endured after his highly publicized African safari trip, King Juan Carlos of Spanish received another slapped on his face after World Wide Fund (WWF) for Nature’s branch in Spain decided to abolish the position of honorary president, which was held by the King.
The King’s hunting trip to Botswana in April this year has caused much furor from environmentalists, as well as from his fellowmen who continues to suffer from Eurozone’s credit crunch.
The King has already publicly apologized but it was too late. More than 85,000 people petitioned through the internet for the King’s resignation.
"Although this type of hunting is legal and regulated, many members consider it to be incompatible with the position of honorary patron of an international organisation that aims to protect the environment," the WWF statement said on Saturday. The vote to abolish the position of honorary president was carried by a 94% majority, it said.
