Shock Disqualification!

The winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award 2009, Jose Luis Rodriguez, has been disqualified after judges decided he had used a trained wolf for the above photo. They identified this wolf as Ossian, a tame wolf living at a zoological park near Madrid. Rodriguez denies the allegation, but the judges not only stripped him of his award, but also banned him for life from entering the competition again. So, for the first time in its 46-year history, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year has no overall winner. There are still many excellent photos at the exhibition in the Natural History Museum, London (CLICK).
