I am new here, but I am going to weigh in. I am a long time horse owner (though currently horseless) and I know horse meat is also a hot topic. I actually do not have a problem with horse meat or any other meat as long as the animals are raised in humane environment acceptable for THEIR SPECIES. You can't raise horses for food like rabbits or cows. It won't work. Also, slaughtering practices need to be as humane and pain/panic free as possible. I know you cannot eliminate all of it, but we have a LOT of room for improvement.
I also believe that anything that is to be meat should be raised FOR MEAT. I could never send my mare I had for 18 years to slaughter. She was raised a pet and I think to do anything but humanly euthanize her at the end would be cruel. I feel the same way about rabbits or cows. Floppsy and Bessy in the back yard as family should be treated like family until the very end. But animals raised in a farm situation for food consumption are s different story. I have no desire to be vegetarian or vegan. But I do not judge those who are, whatever their reason.
I agree with previous posters. You are for or against meat consumption. Picking and choosing species doesn't make sense to me.

I've had rabbit meat and it is good.... no offense, But I do not like the fact that they are killing these poor little rabbits. They were born for a reason, to live no to be killed and eaten!. I love animals like think say you were a rabbit and you were running minding your own bee wax and then BOOM

I don't have time to defend the post at this moment but I suggest anyone wondering "why rabbits and not chickens, cows, ect..." In concerns with the protest last weekend take the time to read the article linked in the first post.

This is not a matter of picking and choosing which animals to eat and which not to eat but of hypocrisy in the Whole Foods brand and the laws which protect other food animals to be treated "humanly" and killed "humanly" which do NOT apply to rabbits.
