    Thumbs up Danish radio station defends killing baby rabbit live on air

    A Danish radio station is defending a show during which the host killed a baby rabbit by hitting it with a bicycle pump, live on the air, saying it was intended to show the hypocrisy of animal lovers.

    The host, Asger Juhl, killed the baby rabbit, called Allan, "according to careful instructions by a professional animal caretaker from a Danish zoo", station 24/7 said on Tuesday (5/26). He later took the rabbit home, skinned it and cooked it.

    Monday's show caused a storm on social media, with many Danes outraged. "They are sick. Euw! THEY should have a bicycle pump in their faces," Facebook user Melissa Rod wrote of the radio show.

    "We knew we would be accused of provocation," the station said in a statement. "And yes, we indeed wanted to provoke the public and to stir a debate about the hypocrisy when it comes to perceptions of cruelty towards animals."

    Correction: Nobody should do that period - radio or not.

    We all realize that killing certain animals for food is a part of life but we are humans, ostensibly the highest life form on planet Earth, and should be able to do it as humanely as possible. This despicable act has the effect of terrorizing listeners which is totally unacceptable. It is an act of depravity and animal cruelty which should be severely punished (along with station management if they knew or authorized this appalling stunt).

    Absolutely not, they should have recorded the show and aired it a few minutes later. Really though, if more people were exposed to this kind of stuff, we might have more vegetarians and vegans. Of course the livestock industry might not like it.
