Please Help Stop The Tippah County Fair Rabbit Scramble

I:19 minutes into this 2014 video you can see a rabbit to the left of the screen frantically kicking and flailing being dropped and picked up then ran with being dangled by the ears still struggling, you see more rabbits kicking and flailing from fear while being painfully dangled by their ears by children running and screaming, rabbits fighting for their life. You can see another violently being dropped resulting in a state of shock unable to move (most likely a result of the back being broken or spine injured). While grown adults do nothing smiling, encouraging and praising this behavior being taught to them. Teaching kids to commit animal abuse and cruelty is not acceptable and the adults should be charged for these heinous acts. 3 more videos just as disturbing can be viewed here.All 50 States Now Have Felony Animal Cruelty Provisions!PLEASE READ THE PETITION LETTER BELOW

Stop Selling Rabbit Meat

What would you do if you saw cat or dog meat in a store? Most people would be completely disgusted, because cats and dogs are the most popular pets in the United States.  So if it's considered barbaric to sell the meat of cats or dogs, why is it considered okay to sell the meat of the third most popular pet in the United States, the rabbit? This petition focuses on Kroger, which used to be one of my favorite stores to shop at until I saw that they were selling rabbit meat, specifically, Pel-Freez rabbit meat. According to an undercover study done by the LCA, (Last Chance for Animals), Pel-Freez workers: ·       Hit the rabbits on the head with the dull edge of a knife, which often doesn't knock them unconscious as it is supposed to ·      Break the rabbits' rear legs ·      Hang the rabbits upside down ·       Stun them (this is usually done improperly, meaning the rabbits remain fully conscious) ·       Decapitate the rabbits- depending on how sharp their knives are, this may take anywhere from one slice to a repeated sawing motion that makes rabbits scream in pain until their vocal cords are severed There are no breeds of rabbits that are exclusively, "Meat rabbits." The breeds primarily used as "Meat rabbits," are New Zealand rabbits, and Californian Rabbits, (as shown above in picture). In fact, New Zealand rabbits are the 8th most common rabbit breed kept as pets! There is no reason that we should be eating an animal that is kept as a pet by millions of people nationwide! So what can you do? 1.    Stop buying rabbit meat if you do 2.    Sign this petition! 3.    Share this petition with everyone you know 4.    Donate to the GoFundMe Page by clicking here 5.    Send a letter to Kroger urging them to stop the sale of rabbit meat  Mailing address-  The Kroger Co. 1014 Vine Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202-1100 6. Consider shopping at one of the following grocery stores instead of Kroger Walmart-   http://www.walmart.com/ ALDI-   https://www.aldi.us/ Meijer-   http://www.meijer.com/# Save-A-Lot-   http://save-a-lot.com/ The Fresh Market-  http://www.thefreshmarket.com/ Trader Joe's-  http://www.traderjoes.com/ If you prefer another grocery store, look online, or call them to see if they sell rabbit meat. 7.
