There is the below exchange of comments under the cat story on Lancaster Online. Amazing! I will finish up the cat story tomorrow!
*** Greg Graham returned my call and was extremely gracious. He was not in the Lancaster County Courthouse yesterday and said he and the LNP reporter (Knapp) spoke for about 60 seconds yesterday afternoon. Knapp asked him if shooting a feral cat was legal and Graham said he told him it was not legal – that it comes under Title 18 and is cruelty to animals.
He said the Game Commission has actually received a number of calls about the case and many people think he prosecuted or was involved in it because of the LNP article. In fact, he told me he was not involved in the case in any way.
** A very important note about the cat story. This is in LNP reporter Tom Knapp’s coverage of yesterday’s plea agreement (click here):
This is deceptive reporting and inexcusable. Was Greg Graham in court and did he testify to that or did Knapp call him separately for his opinion? That should have been made crystal clear in his article.
I have a call in to Graham to see if he was present for the proceeding. The man who took the message stated it was highly unlikely that he was actually in court. I am awaiting absolute verification of this and will let you know.
* As much as LNP uses Eric Horst, you would think they would make a mention of his sudden appendectomy! Get well, Eric, and then do something about this dreadful heat, please!
