Anyone who has worked on a newsdesk for any length of time knows the value of an animal picture story. The cuter the better, and even better if there is a bit of a sob story to go with it.
I think the Lincolnshire Echo might have missed the point with this picture story though. I have nothing against porpoises appearing in newspapers, but I imagine most readers who prefer them to be a) alive and b) most definitely not mangled and bloody.
What next? Readers UGC pictures from their best roadkill?
