New Potion Gives Hope for Hags

"Heavily bandaged, and with several chunks of his face and neck missing, Professor Moonshine told reporters that he hopes to publish his research paper next month."
-- reported by the Daily Prophet (DP4)

New Potion Gives Hope for Hags

New Potion Gives Hope for Hags is an article on the front page of the Daily Prophet announcing research developments for the control of hag appetites for human flesh (DP4).

Coverage of Professor Regulus Moonshine’s press conference about his potion raised some scepticism about his results with hag volunteers (DP4).

Commentary

Notes

It is the missing flesh that invites the scepticism.... They may see Professor Moonshine as a free lunch.

Although the date printed on the fourth Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP4) is 1 October 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
