Topic: Rabbit Rescue Sucks
News Story 9/19/07 about rabbits being dumped at the Massapequa preserve. A Long Island Rabbit Rescue rep is interviewed and gee, can't seem to resist trashing rabbit breeders. Figures.
Nancy Schreiber the rep says her groups is offering $5,000 reward for information. $5,000 boy must be nice that group has that much money to offer as a reward vs using it to care for rabbits, well they "say" there is an overpop crisis shouldn't you need that money for that mythical overpop crisis?
In the article Schreiber goes on and on AND on about how it is probably a breeder or multiple breeders doing the dumping. Well, Nance here's the problem with your "logic", if there are no pet homes for breeder's rabbits or other breeders interested in them we have numerous sources to send to as meat. It would be totally illogical for a rabbit breeder to dump rabbits at some nature reserve. The demand for rabbit meat is always outnumbering demand. And a breeder sending rabbits for meat either for humans or for snakes or raptors get paid or credited with a tax donation for it.
Nance says part of her assumption is the rabbits might be breeder's "rejects". Again Nance we have meat outlets, no need to dump them in a preserve. I mean how much do you hate breeders to come up with such nonsense?
Also, when you assume you make an ass out of U and me.
And then she adds since the rabbits are all brown and white and have one ear up and one down that proves it's from a breeder. Okay I saw the picture in the news report, that rabbit does not look like any recognized breed. And one ear up one lopped, there is no rabbit breed where that is a desired trait. So once again we find "rescue" unfairly trashing and lying about breeders.
It works only because most people know nothing about rabbit breeding. If the general public knew you would see the numerous flaws in the LIRR groups logic as to who is behind this.
Hmm, mixed breed rabbits dumped in a preserve, seems logical to me that it's either a pet owner who needs to s/n their pets or more likely, a rabbit "rescuer" who does not have the resources to properly care for the rabbits. Sound fmailiar? Yeah go read the blog post about the New Mexico rabbit rescuer. There have also been reports over the years of animal "rescuers" caught dumping animals they have rescued in public parks.
Dear LIRR, clearly this is NOT a breeder but rather one of your own. So instead of attacking rabbit breeding-because we all know you hate breeders because you're competing with our beautiful healthy purebred bunnies and it's hard with what you offer plus the jump through hoops part, go find the "rescuer" who got overwhelemed and deal with your own kind!!!
Adoption-just a marketing term for buying from a shelter or rescue. And never adopt while shelters and rescues trash breeders.
