They had a couple horses and about 6 rabbits. Now these were the kids 4-H rabbits, cute little holland lops, that they had raised themselves. These were pet rabbits not meat rabbits. Anyway they housed the animals in the end of one of mink barns. This friend and her kids were huge animal lovers. The animals were treated amazingly wonderful.
One day they came home from school and work the kids went out to feed the animals they found all the cages open 2 rabbits scared shaking in the corner of
The barn. And never could find the rest. Since they lived next to the woods chances are coyotes got them.
So the point of the story. A few days later a little story in the local paper came out that a group was taking credit for liberating rabbits that were caged and being housed on a mink farm , that were going to be killed and used for fur.
These people by letting the rabbits loose killed and basiclly turtured them. They know nothing about animals or how to care for them. Anyone with any sence could see these were well cared for pets.
My friends kids were devastated!!
What about that story when PETA let all ferrets (I believe) out at the farm. Half of them died under car wheels, other half killed most of chickens at the farms around. How humane that is? I just don't get it.
BTW PETA is often considered as "domestic terrorist organization". At least by authorities in my state.
