Activist ‘Bunnies’ Slam Applications for Cruel and Archaic Rabbit Farms

Posted by on May 23, 2011 | Permalink

Carrying signs that read, “Everybunny Say NO to Factory Farms”, our giant costumed “rabbits” gathered outside the Rushcliffe Borough Council office yesterday to protest against applications for two rabbit farms in Granby and East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire.

Modern factory farms are designed to produce as much meat as quickly and cheaply as possible and in the least amount of space. The proposed farms would each house up to 1,100 rabbits who would be kept in wire cages stacked three high inside windowless barns. This unnatural environment – which provides no fresh air or sunlight – can cause extremely painful bone disorders and foot inflammations, and the stressed animals often resort to neurotic, self-harming behaviour.

If the Rushcliffe Borough Council can come up with one good reason to allow two factory farms to set up their bloody business in our backyard, we’re all ears.  The truth is, Britain hasn’t seen intensive factory farms for rabbits in 15 years, and it defies all logic and compassion to bring this gruesome industry back again.
