The town of Canmore in Alberta, Canada has decided despite public objection that they intend to kill the towns population of feral pet rabbits.
Vast amounts of public funds would be wasted on killing the rabbits where it would be far cheaper (and ethical) to hand over the situation to the rescue organisations who have stated that they will trap, neuter and re-home the rabbits.
The rabbits are there in the first place because of neglectful owners and these animals need assistance not brutality. Officials have made quick decisions without even considering alternatives or the welfare of the animals.
We the undersigned urge that the pet rabbits are handed over to the rescue organisations who will trap, neuter/spay and re-home the rabbits.
