“Recreational primate killer”? Or idiotic prat?

Readers of The Independent aren’t used to the page three style of some other tabloid newspapers, and so they must have been shocked this morning to see an enormous tit on page three. But not of the female variety – the tit was, in fact, AA Gill, the restaurant critic, who’s just back from Tanzania after shooting a baboonThe Indy had picked up on Gill’s column in the Sunday Times Style Magazine in which he wrote about journeying to Tanzania to become a “recreational primate killer”.

We think that shooting animals for ‘fun’ is wrong. It’s an affront to decent humane behaviour. Gill ought to be ashamed of himself.
