Complainant Name:
Mr Nicholas Kinloch

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News

Complaint:

Mr Nicholas Kinloch of Edinburgh complained that an article inaccurately suggested that a cat had been shot repeatedly by an airgun. As subsequently became clear, it was likely that the damage had been caused by a single shot from a shotgun.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the editor of the newspaper which ran a follow-up article agreed to meet with the complainant and a representative from the British Association of Shooting and Conservation (BASC).

Report: 77
