The desire for ‘game meat’ has sparked the rise of rabbit farms in Australia — but there’s nothing wild about the way these energetic and affectionate animals are bred. Rabbits in factory farms can’t hop, skip or jump. They’ll never dig a burrow, or chomp on carrot sticks, or even feel the soil beneath their feet. Instead, they’ll be crammed by the hundreds into raised-floor cages, where the wire can rub and cause debilitating abscesses on their limbs. Others will suffer scalding urine burns from lying in their own waste.
SEPTEMBER 2021: Australian rabbit factory farming exposed.
An Animal Liberation investigation revealed shocking suffering at a South East Victorian factory farm. Footage shows live, caged rabbits with facial injuries and missing limbs plus allegedly a live rabbit being thrown into a bin on top of dead animals. See the Victorian rabbit factory farm investigation.
You can help spare rabbits from this cruel fate by refusing rabbit meat if you see it at restaurants or the supermarket.
