Window display reinstated at Sudbury butcher’s

Waiting for Video...

The traditional butcher’s display at JBS Family Butcher’s in Sudbury has returned this morning.

A goose, pigeons, rabbits and ducks have been hung in the front window of the shop in Borehamgate Precinct.

The display had been removed following complaints that it was offensive and a small number of people claimed it made them avoid the shopping centre.

Owner John Sawyer said he had decided not to hang pigs heads or tame rabbits as part of the display.

“They were the two things which seemed to be offending people most and we want to try and keep people happy,” he said.

The display, which had been taken down last Friday, went back up around 9.30am complete with a sign thanking people for their support.

More than 1,000 people had signed a petition calling for the display to be returned and over 200 comments were left on the Free Press facebook page, the vast majority of which were in favour of the animals on offer being reinstated.

“We would like to thank people for their overwhelming support and hope we can now get on with running the business,” said Mr Sawyer.
