My friend Gigi is L'Europe des Levriers' regional rep for Poitou Charentes, the area in which I live. We've run a couple of Meet & Greet publicity days in local supermarkets. A couple of weeks ago Gigi set up the stand was set up in the concours of a busy supermarket, when a French chasseur (hunter) approached and started sounding off strongly in favour of hunting, and berating her about her protest against the cruelty inflicted on the Spanish galgo.
This understandably drew a crowd of shoppers who in turn verbally turned on the Frenchman who, realising he was on a definite losing leg, slunk off. Good on the shoppers, who donated even more sacks of dog food for EDL!
