Decomposing carcass prompts apology
"Damien Hirst is to apologise after rotting animal remains were left outside his studio in Chalford over the Bank Holiday Weekend. The parts - thought to be from a cow - were supposed to have been picked up on Friday 28 May but were not removed until Tuesday 1 June... 'As I walked towards the box the smell just got stronger and there were loads of flies. When I opened up the lid it was revolting - it was like something out of a horror film. There was a big lump of something that looked like a cow. It was absolutely vile.' ... Hirst, a Turner Prize winner, is widely known for displaying dead animals in tanks of formaldehyde."
