2008 interview with Jay from CAPS magazine now online

Added on Monday 01 June 2009, 21:03 (BST)

In mid-2007 Jay became a patron of the Captive Animals Protection Society.  Established in 1957, CAPS is one of the UK's leading campaigning organisations on behalf of animals in circuses, zoos and other entertainment industries.

Back in 2008 the society interviewed Jay for their members magazine and they have just made the full interview available online at the CAPS website.

CAPS is really pleased that you agreed to become a patron. What helped you make that decision?

I like the idea that CAPS is a small grass-roots organisation. I find it really offensive to see animals in cages and dippy tourists having their photos taken with baby elephants in Thailand or monkeys in Russia. So any organisation that campaigns to stop this sort of thing is good as far as I’m concerned, as well as the stuff you do in the UK.

Very nice interview!! =)

Agreed,that was an interesting read! good on you jay.

Good for him. If I didn't have to work I'd volunteer for a charity like this, as cruelty to animals makes me more upset and angry than probably anything else in the World.

"It annoys me when journalists don't do their homework."

Exactly. THAT is why you should let a journalist who is a fan do an interview! I think I happen to know one...


"Then, when I was seventeen, I wrote "When you gonna learn" ".
