“Striscia la Notizia”. Edoardo Stoppa attacked in Caltanissetta
The reporter was in Sicily to denounce the appalling situation of how different animals were being held. One of the farmers chased him with an iron bar
Edoardo Stoppa, who has been reporting on the mistreatment of animals for some time, had a rough time in Caltanissetta. A dog breed chased him for a hundred yards with an iron bar and launching threats until the whole crew was able to take refuge in the car. The episode titled “Animals locked up in shacks in Caltanissetta” was aired on March 17, 2015. The day before Canale 5 had aired another episode, “Dogs in need of cares in Palermo”, where Stoppa and his operator were attacked (Ossigeno reported the incident: Read here). Also this time, the crew of the TV show Striscia la Notizia decided not to report the assault to the police.
