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 - Medical Research - 08)  According to Betrayed, rabbits are also used in thermal injury, inhalation and genetic engineering experiments amongst others.  Some typical experiments include:

  • St. George's Hospital Medical School, London, studied the effects of human bone protein on the healing rate of rabbit bone fractures.  Rabbits were forced to endure broken limbs for up to 28days.
  • Researchers at the University of Nottingham, School of Biological Sciences crushed the spinal cords of rabbits with a pair of forceps to cause partial paralysis.  Mechanical and chemical stimuli were then applied to the toes of their hind legs to determine the effects on the spinal reflex.

To us, this is nothing by legalized sadism!
