On Sunday, January 25, Zooh Corner stood in solidarity against Whole Foods and their sickening use of domestic pet rabbits as food. Besides the obvious concern that they are using the very animals we love and support as a commodity, there have been numerous reports on the cruel and inhumane handling of the rabbits throughout the farming process.
We have opposed their decision to introduce rabbit meat in their stores since last summer, where we have joined ranks with other organizations to spread word. Their refusal to respond to customer concerns have alienated the rabbit lover community.
Despite this, they continue to uphold their decision, and demonstrate nothing but hypocrisy with their “values matter” campaign. By contrast, stores like Sprouts have proven their desire to listen to their customers.
