They were pursued by police, hunters and local experts, who agreed that there was no effective way of tranquilizing or containing the animals. Fearing the risk to public safety, authorities asked hunters to gun the herd down.

    Jokes from the script of Adam Sandler’s upcoming comedy, The Ridiculous Six, have leaked online two days after Native American cast members stormed off of the set in protest. The script, first obtained by Gawker, is more than two years old, but it contains many of the same jokes that some cast members decried in interviews as “disrespectful” to their culture. Those cast members took exception to gag tribal names such as “Beaver’s Breath” and “No Bra.” While Gawker found no reference to a character named “No Bra,” the site did confirm…
