Photographs on display of deer dogs out stalking were removed from a booth at this year's Crufts
Several photographs of deer dogs out stalking, which formed part of the display at the Bavarian Mountain Hound booth in the Discover Dogs section at this year’s Crufts were removed by Kennel Club (KC) officials as they were deemed upsetting to visitors.
The Discover Dogs area features stands devoted to the history of different dog breeds and is manned by representatives of the breed societies. Mrs Garraway, secretary of the Bavarian Mountain Hound Society of Great Britain, said: “This year, on the Sunday, members arrived to find the booth empty of 50 per cent of pictures, the KC had decided to take them down without consulting us. KC official Bill Lambert likened our pictures of our hounds working to the bull terrier stand displaying pictures of dog fighting.”
