Standing Up for Rabbits

I was proud to take part in the Day of Action yesterday in Boulder to urge Whole Foods to stop selling rabbit meat.  Rabbits are the third most popular companion animal; would Whole Foods start selling dog meat if some customers asked for it?  I learned that, although Whole Foods does not permit cosmetic testing on rabbits for products sold in their Whole Body section, they slaughter the very same breed of rabbits for their meat department!  “Pets are not food!” was heard across the country.  Margo DeMello, president of the House Rabbit Society, has written a well-reasoned article on the issue.  See these great photos taken at some of the 44 protest events nationwide at WF stores.
