Chinese Eat Cats Says BBC Presenter

BBC Radio presenter Judi Spiers has had to apologise on air after claiming on air that Chinese people eat cats. The quote was regarding discussion on a book being sold telling the story of Casper the cat who travelled 11 miles back and forth on a bus route from its home in Plymouth. Judi had said;

“Ten-and-a-half thousand copies have been sold and the book has been translated into six different languages – Dutch, German, Portuguese, Italian and two dialects of Chinese – I don’t know whether they’ll enjoy that, don’t they eat cats?”

Half an hour after the statement she apologized for what she had said, apologising to any of the listeners who may have found it distasteful and that she did not mean to offend.
