Say NO to rabbit battery farming


Say NO to rabbit battery farming

“Rabbit battery farming could return to the UK for the first time in 15 years.  This cruel practice sees rabbits kept in small wire cages in windowless sheds with no opportunity for natural behaviour such as digging, foraging, running and hiding.  We are moving away from battery farming for other animals – why reintroduce it now for rabbits?

The British public have reacted with distate to this spate of planning applications for battery rabbit farms because rabbits are usually thought of as pets in the UK.  Bunnyhugga is spearheading the campaign against these proposals with support from the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund because this could also undermine decades of work to improve pet rabbit welfare, still the most neglected pet in Britain.  The RWAF point out that many pet rabbits live in hutches smaller than those laid out by law for rabbit battery farms. 

Show your support and act now!  Every signature helps.  Thank you”
