Dear America's Funniest Home Videos, please remove this video!

America's Funniest Home videos (AFV)
has compiled home videos of rabbit videos to celebrate Easter. In the video, owners of the pets watch and laugh as rabbits are either attacked by cats or frightened by children. The pet bunnies are also submerged in water, which is very traumatizing to a rabbit. The beginning of the video shows someone placing a rabbit on its back, this is known as "trancing" the rabbit and it is considered to be abuse in the house rabbit pet owner community because it frightens the rabbit to be forced into this position. The rabbit is obviously frightened as its legs quiver and shake and people laugh as this is going on. Some well intentioned rabbit owners may not have known any better when they made this video, but AFV should know better. This is abuse, and it's NOT funny, especially to people who love animals, own rabbits as the third most popular house pet in the world, and understand rabbit healthcare behavior.

AFV, please remove this video as soon as possible! Pet bunny owners everywhere will thank you!

Please sign, share and support this petition as much as possible! 

Thank you,
The Companion Rabbit Community
