Rabbit Meat - Video Reveals Sickening Cruelty in Rabbit Farms

Rabbit meat is one of the most consumed meats in the world.  Consequently, more than 1.2 billion rabbits are slaughtered every year, after living in intense confinement.

When we think of rabbits, an image of highly active animals comes to mind. We know they like to jump, run and find hiding places. People who adopted rabbits as companion animals also know that rabbits are social animals who enjoy interacting with others and establishing loving relationships.

Rabbits who are kept in standard rabbit meat farms are caged in wire cages so small, they can hardly even sit up straight and extend their ears, let alone run and jump.  As a result of not being able to exercise and perform basic movements such as stretching, rabbits start to experience daily pain, constant discomfort and injuries.

In the wild, rabbits spend their days searching for food, building nests, escaping danger, establishing relationships... They lead very active and exciting lives! On the contrary, rabbits raised for rabbit meat have the most boring lives imaginable. To put in bluntly, they have absolutely nothing remotely interesting to do.

This video is the result of a 2 year investigation by Animal Equality into the rabbit meat industry in Spain. Sadly, the awful reality revealed in this video reflects the situation in commercial rabbit farms all over the world.

When we force an animal to live a life of zero mental stimulation and close to zero ability to move around, we are essentially sentencing that animal to a life of extreme and non-stop suffering, both mentally and physically. The rabbits behind rabbit meat are truly one of the most miserable beings in the world. Gladly, each and every one of us can decide to not contribute to this torture, by simply not eating animals!

In order to help more animals escape a fate of misery, please give vegan food a try. For an easy start, join Challenge 22 to get free guidance and support for 22 days.
