UN – the penis snatcher…

25 02 2008

Sweden’s chief heraldists is not happy with the decision by the Nordic Battlegroup to remove a lion’s penis depicted on its coat of arms.

Commander of the Nordic Battlegroup, Karl Engelbrektsson, decided to remove lion’s genitals to prevent any possible offence of female soldiers after he read UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security.

Here are the images of poor lion before and after the injury:
