Stop Stocking Rabbit Meat

Rabbits are, for millions of North Americans, a beloved part of the family. These gentle, curious, playful creatures are friends to our species.

The breed usually raised for meat, New Zealands, make wonderful companion animals. They are well-known as doting mothers to their kits.  They are loyal and affectionate.

We are outraged that Loblaw Companies Ltd is stocking these beloved animals in their stores (including Fortinos, Loblaws and Zehrs) to serve a small minority of customers with that preference.  Many of the individual store managers have expressed that they do NOT wish to sell it in their store, but are forced to by head office.

We, friends of rabbits, will not support stores that carry rabbit meat. These creatures are not ours to breed, to separate from natural social relations, to house in typically cramped conditions with little opportunity for healthful and happy behaviours.

In Canada, there are NO Codes of Practice for Rabbits under the Humane Slaughter Act. There are no laws that require livestock rabbits to receive minimum amounts of food, water, space, sensible handling, or effective medical care.  We will not support stores that are responsible for the suffering and death of animals that many people consider pets.

They are not yours to hang by a leg, electrocute, stab, eviscerate and decapitate.

Please sign this petition and let Loblaw Company Ltd know that you do not support the sale of rabbit meat in any of their stores!
