Bunnies Used As Fuel

Bodies of dead rabbits are being used as bioenergy to heat homes in Sweden.

Rabbit overpopulation has led government officials in Stockholm, Sweden to "recycle" the bodies of dead rabbits as fuel for energy plants. The overpopulation is caused by an increase of private citizens releasing pet rabbits into city parks and gardens, where they speedily multiply and ravage local vegetation. For Swedish animal-control authorities, the obvious solution is to shoot the excess rabbits, freeze them, and ship them to a heating plant in the country's interior. Local animal-rights activists are denouncing the government's answer to the overpopulation issue, arguing that it turns animals into an industry, instead of persecuting irresponsible pet guardians.
