Bunny Butchered on TV

Nothing to do with Arbroath has a story about a Bunny Bloodbath [^] on German television. Apparently chef, Sarah Wiener, in “Sarah Wiener and the kitchen children” stunned, killed and butchered a rabbit in front of her teenage assistants.

The chef said in [^], “I believe that people should know what they eat. It’s exactly from not seeing what goes on in our slaughterhouses that . . . an underestimation of food products occurs”.

It seems that although some children were upset by the sight, they were willing to eat the rabbit the following day once it had been roasted. So it seems that no lasting harm was done, to the children at least. 

On a personal note, the CannibalRabbit Corgi, Chloe, loves rabbit.  This means that the whole family has to get involved in rabbit processing, from the sourcing to packaging. And we agree that it can be confronting at first. But it does make you realise that for us to eat meat another creature must die.

This is not something that should be done lightly, or inhumanely. How many more people would be vegetarian if they were more actively involved in the production meat, rather than just picking up a shrink-wrapped tray from the supermarket?
