The Rabbit

Wishful Thinking


For most of us, our first thought of a rabbit is of the one we see in our yard or along the side of the road...


...or perhaps we think of a companion rabbit...


...or perhaps we envision a rabbit in a sanctuary enjoying a bagel with a friend; but this is not the life that millions of rabbits are forced to endure.

Reality

(Rabbit - Meat - 01)  Cage upon cage, cage after cage filled with rabbits whose only release from this dungeon will come with their death when they are slaughtered for their flesh.  According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in 1998, 325,000 rabbits were slaughtered for their flesh and fur.  This number rose to 385,000 in 2000.  Since in the United States there are slaughtered only about 7% of the rabbits killed each year for food, we estimate that worldwide about 6,000,000 are slaughtered every year.  We don't believe that this total includes small unregulated operations like those shown of an Asian market later in this journal.
