(Letter to the Editor, Skegness Standard, 1st December 2010)
Very cruel way to kill rabbits
The Skegness farmer who is calling for the nationwide killing of rabbits by his new method is very cruel and must be stopped immediately by the RSPCA.
He places scores of house bricks amongst his crop, on which he places chopped carrot – which is heavily peppered – then when the rabbits commence to eat the carrot, the pepper gets up their tender nostrils, forcing them to sneeze and bash their brains out on the bricks.
Many do not die immediately, and are left with terrible head injuries.
Myself and volunteers attend the scene and bandage many up.
We plead to all night motorists, when they see these bandaged rabbits slowly crossing the road, to ease up so a to give these poor animals a second chance.
Please, motorists, please.
