The Bully — a correction


This was the headline in the Australian newspaper the Morning Bulletin (know locally as The Bully) in Rockhampton, Queensland and the story went on to explain:

"More than 30,000 pigs have been floating down the Dawson River since last weekend with a piggery at Baralaba paralysed by flooding which has killed most of its bred livestock."

However Bully reporter Daniel Burden interviewed butcher Sid Everingham, who owns and runs the piggery near Barabalaba, over the phone and unfortunately he misheard him. What Mr Everingham  actually said was, "More than 30 sows and pigs".
