Really now, how is this any different than a bank or credit union buying art for their lobby? Local artists getting payment and recognition for their talents, this is a good thing!
It´s a common myth that healthy eating is expensive. In truth whole vegetables, fruits and grains and beans are the least expensive items when you consider the serving size and health benefits you get from them. It is true though that the government does huge give subsidies to the meat and dairy which makes their true cost artificially low, and influences people to buy unhealthy foods. This chart illustrates what I´m talking about: http://www.pcrm.org/news/usda_food_plate_federal_subsidies_meat_dairy_110602.html
No wonder "Terri" only gives her first name, I would too if I spread these lies about rabbits and their needs. Such a small wire cage is not "plenty of room", these babies she is killing at 8 to 10 weeks have they really had "a good life"? Would you think your life was good if you were treated as such? And as for medical attention mineral oil is no cure at all for GI stasis in rabbits and any good rabbit vet will tell you that, but Terri would not know this since she does not care enough for her rabbits to ever take them to a vet! And 20 minutes a day in care is not enough for any dog or rabbit, she obviously has no understanding about the needs of her rabbits. How do call keeping animals that are trapped in a wire cage with no comfort, companionship, play, or exercise humane?She prays over the bodies of her victims? Does this justify the fact she killing these poor gentle animals that even the ARBA admits has barely measurable nutritional value? People (and newspapers) like this throw around words like "humane" and "sustainable" when they are really trying to justify in their own minds the killing they are condoning is for no good reason. So you call this sustainable? It is certainly true that human cruelty seems to be sustainable, as evident in this article.If you want factual information on rabbits go to www.rabbit.org
