Jeremy Clarkson denied recent rumors that he will leave Top Gear, or that the show will shut down entirely stating he will be part of the show "unless I am eaten by a pack of wild dogs before the next series starts early next year."

The Huffington Post reported on Clarkson's very understandable fear of wild dogs, which are known for their cunning, their speed, and their brutality. He has every right to express concern about being torn limb from limb by these noble, striking creatures.

The current calls for Clarkson's dismissal (it's hard to keep track of them all) stem from him using a racist term for Vietnamese people while filming Top Gear's Vietnamese special.
