Campaign Targeting Whole Foods: Stop Selling Rabbit Meat

This Sunday, a campaign to protest Whole Foods’ recent decision to sell rabbit meat will take place across the nation.

On August 17, animal lovers from all over the country will participate in a campaign to protest Whole Foods Market's decision to sell rabbit meat. Organized by House Rabbit Society, SaveABunnyRabbit Advocacy Network, and others, participants will distribute leaflets to customers, generate petition signatures, and protest with signage outside stores from California to New York.
