HRS Encourages Whole Foods Boycott

hrsThe House Rabbit Society activist corner has recently posted a call for rabbit lovers to boycott Whole Foods until they reconsider their decision to sell rabbit meat at their stores in Northern California.  From their site:

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Stop shopping at Whole Foods and take your business elsewhere until they stop selling rabbit meat.
  2. Tell Whole Foods of your decision. Feel free to borrow the language from our letter.
  3. Tell others of your decision, via Facebook or Twitter, and ask them to do the same.
  4. Sign the online petition at Change.org.
