Showbiz News: The entertainment industry is reeling in shock after the police have begun an investigation into claims that Rod Hull abused animals during the 1970’s and 80’s.

The inquiry was set in motion after allegations recently surfaced that popular entertainer Rod Hull, who died in 1999, systematically abused a large flightless bird that he appeared on TV with.

The earliest allegations go back to his appearance on the 1972 Royal Variety Performance, when he was reportedly seen putting his hand up the bird in a ‘highly inappropriate fashion’.

“He was without any sense of shame,” said one witness who asked to remain anonymous. “He and the bird where backstage, surrounded by other performers and stage crew. Then he just rolled up his sleeve and put his arm directly into that poor bird, right in front of everyone.”

In 1985 Hull travelled to America where he appeared on The Tonight Show. A relative of host Johnny Carson alleges he saw Hull abusing the bird – which, when later interviewed, seemed ‘confused and aggressive’ towards Hull and Carson.

“It’s simply shocking that just because someone has a high public profile they can get away with decades of this kind of blatantly obvious animal abuse,” said a spokesman for Sussex police.
