(Newser) – If you think your job sucks, at least it's not this bad: Someone recently had to dig up Michael Jackson's two giraffes, one of whom had been dead since November, and re-bury them. The residents of Page, Ariz., complained about the stench that resulted when the animals were buried on the wildlife preserve where they had lived, TMZ reports. They are now in an undisclosed location—and the two surviving giraffes were moved outside the state.
