Another Gray day at the Telegraph

Yesterday afternoon our press office took a call from Louise Gray, the environment correspondent at The Daily Telegraph. About twenty minutes into the conversation, Gray seemed genuinely surprised when we said that we didn’t want the Hunting Act to be repealed. “But it doesn’t work,” she said.

Then today’s edition of that paper – the house journal for the bloodsports community – contains a story that League hunt observers are planning to “disrupt” hunts. We’re not. And Louise has got terribly confused and has called us Saboteurs (we’re not) and animal rights activists (we’re not).

Private Eye are frequently reporting that the Telegraph is considering cutbacks to save costs. The League would be happy to suggest one ‘cutback’ which would not only save them money but probably lead to some accurate journalism – for a change.
