I posted yesterday about 60 activist in Spain “liberating” some 16 rabbits and getting into crap and even peppered with birdshot.  It seems they ended up a crapload more damage that originally thought.

Last Sunday, around a hundred rabbits died at Gurb Farm near Osono, Spain, after the property was ransacked by animal rights activists.
The vast majority of the rabbits which died were baby rabbits or ‘kits’ as most of the fourteen bunnies taken were pregnant or lactating mother rabbits.

Due to the stress of the assault, many mother rabbits suffered broken spines and miscarried their kits.

Five heavily pregnant mother rabbits died during the incident.

La Vanguardia reports that several rabbits suffered severed spinal injuries and miscarried due to stress.

The vet was forced to euthanize around 90 baby rabbits that were left without mothers while they were very young and vulnerable.

Spain: Vegan Activists Caused Death of 100 Rabbits at Farm

 

The owner of the farm complains that they were tossing the rabbits to each other. He went on to explain how the animals would stress out, milking mothers will stop milking and pregnant ones would miscarriage.

And this feeble excuse for human walking upright actually had the face to say this:

 

Let’s summarize: They break into a rabbit farm, steal 16 rabbits which some were pregnant and some were lactating, break their spine due to mishandling, damage other farm property and see themselves as heroes.

And I know they will get away without paying one red Peseta for the damages.

  1. Does Spain have laws against animal cruelty? Tossing animals around seems to fit. And, of course, any laws against theft of destruction of livestock.

  2. This mentality explains the strong overlap between animal rights activists and radical left wing socialists.

    Socialists don’t care how man people they kill and how many more they make suffer in order to bring around their idea of a fair society.

    These activists didn’t care how many rabbits they killed and made suffer to feel like they did some good.

    For the radical Left, there are always those who are disposable so the activists can get what they want.

  3. I assume that the surviving rabbits (if any) were released into the “wild” to run free. Thereby becoming a problem for farmers, and being domestic rabbits most likely end up as food for feral dogs and cats. Of course the socialist terrorists (redundant I know) will fell good about themselves and go home and have a nice vegan dinner with a side of smug.

      1. Life for most wildlife is nasty, brutish, and short. You can tell these “liberators” think that life if like a Disney Movie.

        Which is better for these rabbits.

        To be fed and housed and taken care of until they are neatly dispatched as humanly as possible…. or….

        A brief existence in the wild before being ripped apart and eaten alive by an eagle, owl, fox, or other predator?

  4. I can’t get this story out of my head. I had a white rabbit as a pet for several years. He was adorable. He had personality. He was supposed to be a meat rabbit for snakes but got too big so the exotic pet store sold him cheap and we kept him as a pet.

    Domesticated rabbits like that are surprisingly delicate animals. He loved being petted but if you were too rough with him he would freak out. We had to be super gentle when cutting his nails.

    That picture of the rabbit with the broken spine breaks my heart.

    I wonder if there is some old Franco era tricornnio that might be persuaded to deal these punks the way they used to.

  5. Having raised rabbits specifically for meat, I can tell you: They are wonderful creatures, but the reason rabbits breed like, well, rabbits, is because: a. they are low on the food chain, and b. they die REALLY easily.

    As a species they HAVE to have 4-6 litters of 8-12 kits per year, just to replace the breeding pair. Whether from predation, accidents, complications, environmental factors, or whatever, most won’t make it to adulthood. It’s the same reason wild salmon lay thousands of eggs; the vast majority won’t make it back to propagate the species.

    No joke, we had to check our pens after thunderstorms and Harley-Davidsons, because some die just from the shock caused by sudden loud noises.

    So yes, domesticated rabbits are surprisingly delicate; pregnant or lactating females even more so. Tossing them would break them, and removing them from a comfortable environment would stress them to miscarriage and halt lactation. The “fight or flight” response is weighted heavily toward “flight”, and their systems are designed to capitalize on that at all costs, up to and including the next generation.

    Those “animal rights” activists would have known all that … if they cared to learn anything about the creatures they were “rescuing”.
