Complainant Name:
Ms Claire Vinent

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent

Complaint:

Ms Claire Vinent of London complained that the newspaper had inaccurately suggested that rabbits were a low-maintenance pet, and that the only living area required for them was a hutch no smaller than 3 x 1. She stated that rabbits required a lot of care and attention and that a hutch of that size would severely impact upon the health of the rabbit.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper informed the complainant that it had already amended the article to state that a hutch should be a minimum of 6 x 2 x 2, with additional space for a run.

Report: 79
