Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent


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.


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
