image for Isle of Wight News - Door Left Open Overnight at Butterfly World; No Butterflies Missing

A door to Butterfly World was inadvertently left open overnight by a night caretaker who has since been sacked from his job. Miraculously, however, no butterflies seemed to be missing in the morning when the first workers showed up and found the door wide open.

Said May Flowers, chief entomologist for Butterfly World "We was right worried when we seen that door flung wide open an them butterflies flitting about nervously. It was the oddest thing. Butterflies were hangin' on the inside of the door even wit it flung wide open, but it's almost as if they was trying to pull the door back shut, they was."

Workers spent the morning following the butterflies around and re-cataloguing them to see if any were missing. They claim that every butterfly in the house was accounted for, all 909,763 of them (as of last Tuesday's count). There seem to be no casualties either, other than a Blue Morpho butterfly from Brazil had a nicked wing and had to be hospitalised for a few days to put him on the mend.
