Terrapin Farm Manager 'executed' After Angering North Korea's Kim Jong-un by Nobody: 11:19am On Jul 10, 2015
The manager of a terrapin farm who incurred the wrath of Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has been executed.
State-run media released pictures in mid-May of a clearly furious Mr Kim berating officials of the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm after the dictator arrived to provide "field guidance".
KCNA reported that the farm for breeding terrapins had been set up on the orders of Kim Jong-il, the father of the present ruler of North Korea, but all the baby terrapins in the tanks died.

The officials tried to explain that a lack of electricity meant that water could not be pumped into the tanks, while there were also shortages of feed for the terrapins.
Mr Kim was additionally outraged that part of the farm had not been set aside to "educate employees in the revolutionary history" of Kim Jong-il, KCNA reported.
The dictator dismissed the officials' explanations, saying that "only sighs of defeatists come from units" that fail to "uphold and glorify the leadership exploits of the great leaders and the party".
He added that their excuses about problems with water, electrical supplies and equipment were "nonsensical complaints", the Daily NK web site reported.
Sources in Pyongyang told NK News that the manager of the terrapin farm was shot dead shortly after Mr Kim's visit.

No one appears to have attempted to intervene to stop the execution, although the sources said that the assumption is that it "would have happened anyway" as the leader was determined to "set an example".
The incident – along with the execution of engineers held responsible for the collapse of an apartment building in Pyongyang in May 2014 – seems to have galvanized state employees to express their loyalty to Kim.
On the other hand, there are reports that increasing numbers of senior officials – who would previously have held coveted and safe positions – defecting because they fear his unpredictable purges.
According to South Korean intelligence estimates, Mr Kim has ordered the execution of at least 70 senior party, government and military officials since he inherited power in December 2011.

A terrapin is one of several small species of turtle living in fresh or brackish water.
