In our story headed 'Yoko Eats the Queen's Dog", which we published on 31 May 2007, we claimed that Yoko Ono has appeared on a radio program with performance artist Mark McGowan and had tested the dog eat he was eating.
Now we accept that the story was completely untrue and without any foundation. Ms Ono did not appear on the program and was in fact in Moscow attending the opening of her show in the Moscow Biennale.
The story was a hoax, for which we fell. We apologize unreservedly for the offence and distress caused to Ms Ono.
