About so-called 'Rabbit Rescues'

I don't know about you all, but this has been bothering me for some time now. These so-called rabbit rescue groups, who literally steal perfectly happy, healthy rabbits from breeders, then beg money from the public and ultimately 'adopt' (read: SELL) them out to the public - assuming for one moment that these rabbits actually did need 'rescued' (and from recent events that is indeed a pretty big assumption); wouldn't the money that is begged, borrowed, and stolen in order to support said rabbits in even worse conditions from that which they were 'rescued' from, be better spent on hungry children? Wouldn't the humane butchering of these supposedly 'thousands' of homeless bunnies, and the distribution of the extremely healthy meat thereof to hungry children, make a lot more sense?

Or are bunnies more important than children?

I think you've hit on the right question, Janet.

That would be too logical. I don't think the people perpetrating these bunny thefts can even remotely think like this. Their values are upside down.
