Complainant Name:
Ms Audrey O’Byrne

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Audrey O'Byrne complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about an amateur photographer photographing exotic predators in Montana had misleadingly suggested that he had come across the animals in the wild, when they were actually tamed residents of a game farm.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the alteration of the wording of the article to make it clear that it had not been necessary to track down the animals and that the photographs had been taken in controlled conditions.
