So I ran across this little gem (WARNING: very graphic depiction of people skinning rabbits alive), and I was wondering two things. Well, actually lots more if you count all the random thoughts I tried to distract myself with so as not to throw up, but two that are pertinent to this topic.
- Are these things really rabbits? They don’t look like the rabbits I know.
- What’s with the incredibly inhumane way of killing them? It doesn’t seem to be to keep blood from getting on the fur. Granted, I couldn’t watch the entire thing, but it looked pretty bloody to me. Is it sheer laziness? That doesn’t seem to work either, since I can’t imagine it being easier to slam the animal on the ground repeatedly as opposed to just crushing it’s skull in with a hammer or something. Now that I think about it, a hammer might not even be more humane.
- Yeah, yeah, I know, I said two, but I have to make sure; this is real, right? My animal loving inside prays it’s not, but knowing the sad depths of human nature, it’s all too easy to believe.
