Really bad Telegraph article :(

Post by iiisecondcreep on Fri Jan 03, 2014 10:45 am

Rabbits Require Rights posted this on FB yesterday, the article is from November.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sponsored/finance/top-tips/property/10450236/how-to-build-rabbit-hutch.html

Hopping space is not essential, but the hutch needs to be about four times the size of your rabbit when fully grown

Sad

The form should anyone wish to contact them regarding the article

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/topics/about-us/form/

Worth noting that the author has agreed to discuss the matter with her editor

But a petition is in place anyway asking for the editor to apologise

They have amended the article already! Good job Hoppers! cheers 

"Contrary to an earlier version of this item and following representations by interested readers we are happy to make clear that hopping space is essential in rabbit hutches."

Still 'room' for improvement about the size tho.  Wink

Great!!

It's just a pity we can't undo all the damage that they did. Some will have read that and won't see that it has been amended Sad
