    A vegan activist in Spain who claimed to have been attacked by an angry mob last week — after she “rescued” 16 rabbits from their farm — wound up causing the deaths of nearly 100 baby bunnies in the process, a report says. The activist, who goes by the name “Mythical Mia” on social media, conducted the alleged rescue mission on a farm near Osono last Sunday, according to the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia. Five rabbits, which were pregnant and about to give birth, were killed during the chaotic retrieval and several others were left with broken spines, the paper...

    The playful, stainless steel, 41 in (104 cm) high rabbit, regarded as one of the most celebrated works of 20th-century art, was sold for more than $20 million over its pre-sale estimate. Christie's said the sale made Koons the highest-priced living artist, overtaking the $90.3 million record set last November by British painter David Hockney's 1972 work "Portrait of an Artist (Pool With Two Figures.)" The shiny, faceless oversized rabbit, clutching a carrot, is the second in an edition of three made by Koons in 1986.

    ORLANDO, Fla. - The last thing you want to do is make the Easter Bunny angry; because if you do, he'll become hopping mad. All jokes aside, the Easter icon threw down his paws in Orlando last night when he got involved in a little holiday fisticuffs. WKMG reports the person in the bunny costume put themselves in the middle of a fight between a man and a woman. The "bunny" appears to try and break things up, but then starts throwing haymakers of his/her own. Orlando police broke up the fight moments later while the bunny stood off to...
  • Monthly Cooking Thread - Easter Update

    04/19/2019 3:46:23 PM PDT · by Jamestown1630 · 110 replies
    I was saying to my husband that I wanted to post a thread for Easter, but didn't know what to post. He said, "A rabbit recipe!" My husband's father raised rabbits, and the family grew up eating them. I said that I didn't think that would be exactly appropriate to the season; and Husband said, "It'll be funny!" So, here's a compromise: a pretty Bunny Cake - I think Liz has posted this or something very like it before - and from Epicurious, 'Rabbit Cacciatore' from Ischia in Italy. (If you're like me and averse to eating actual Bunny, Chicken...

  • Sony Pictures apologizes for ‘Peter Rabbit’ scene, saying it ‘made light’ of food allergies

    02/12/2018 3:46:49 AM PST · by Libloather · 33 replies
    Critics have found a number of ways to describe Sony Pictures’ new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s mischievous yet beloved bunny, “Peter Rabbit.” The modern Peter Rabbit is a frat bro, a “raging narcissist,” a vandal that escalates a feud into a “truly sadistic display of violence.” Now, the bunny character has been billed as something else — a food allergy bully. The scene prompted intense backlash from allergy advocacy groups and parents of children with food allergies, who said it mocked an attack that in real life could have proved fatal. The segment led to a hashtag — #boycottpeterrabbit —...

    President Trump’s proposed border wall has been hotly debated as a political, economic and human rights issue ever since it emerged as a signature part of his campaign platform. But it’s also a major conservation issue, wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin argues. “The impact will be huge. It will be an environmental catastrophe,” Corwin told CBS News on Wednesday. Corwin, a nature conservationist known for his television work on the cable network Animal Planet, is concerned that the wall will dramatically disrupt what has been “nature’s corridor through North and South America” for millions of years now. At least 89 endangered...

    An Ohio truck driver is being credited for his warm heart and his ability to pay attention to things others may have overlooked. When Dan O’Grady passed a little dog on the side of the highway in Florida, he knew he had to do something. He pulled over on the next exit and walked back to find the little dog. The frantic Jack Russell terrier barked at O’Grady and continued to run away from him every time he got close. O’Grady refused to give up and followed the terrier into the woods by the highway. Underneath a bush, O’Grady saw...

    An animal lover who claims to look after stray cats at home has been caught butchering the felines before selling them to restaurants, according to Chinese media. Sickening images have emerged showing dozens of cats killed, frozen and even decapitated at the man's tiny warehouse in Chengdu, south-west China. An undercover investigation carried out by the local Chengdu Business Daily revealed that the man, named Huang Fuping, sold the dead cats as rabbits to meat vendors in rural China for 20 yuan per kilogram (£2.3).

  • [March 27, 2015] March Hares Hopping on the Rabbit Bandwagon

    Rabbits aren't just for snuggling. They are, in fact, for eating. Though rabbit meat's last heyday (at least in the United States) was during World War II when most of the beef was shipped to troops overseas, the consumption of rabbit meat is again on the rise. While some might find the notion of eating something so cute quite difficult to stomach (Whole Foods' decision to start selling the white meat at select stores in 2014 was met with boycotts and protested by groups such as the House Rabbit Society), the meat has historically been embraced by different cultures and...

    A rare and elusive rabbit has been found, held and photographed by a researcher from the University of East Anglia (UEA). The Annamite Striped rabbit, found in the forests of Laos and Vietnam, was first documented by rabbit expert Dr Diana Bell and colleagues from UEA’s School of Biological Sciences in the journal Nature in 1999. It has rarely been seen since. Researcher Sarah Woodfin, who is studying for a Masters in Applied Ecology and Conservation at UEA, set out on a three-month expedition to track the recently-discovered rabbit and study its habitat. But she didn’t expect to see one...
