and I'm also sure that both rabbits and chickens are animals - living, breathing, creatures. However, the USDA classifies rabbits as poultry. Why? Because "poultry" are excluded frfom the 1958 Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.
This post is a bit different than usual, because we really want to raise awareness. Because not only are rabbits not covered, but obviously everything else that is considered as poultry. Please sign this petition to have these laws changed. There is one for rabbits as well as for poultry. There is also a video with more explanation, which is NOT graphic. The laws in the US and in Canada are the same, so regardless of where you live please sign.
