Danish radio DJ kills nine-week-old rabbit live on air


A Danish radio station is defending the killing
of a baby rabbit during a live show. On Tuesday, the show’s host killed the nine-week-old
rabbit by hitting it with a bicycle pump before wringing its neck live on air. The station has been criticised over the item
but show host Asger Juhl said it was to demonstrate the hypocrisy of animal rights campaigners
who eat meat from supermarkets. He later took the rabbit home, skinned it
and cooked it. Radio station Radio 24SYV said Juhl killed
the rabbit “according to careful instructions by a professional animal caretaker from a
Danish zoo.” During the broadcast, the station provided
details of the livestock industry in Denmark. It said concern for animal welfare did not
extend to the way animals are killed for people’s dining room tables. The incident is the latest to set off outrage
over Danish treatment of animals. Last year Copenhagen Zoo killed and publicly
dissected a giraffe and, a few weeks later killed four healthy lions to renew its breeding.
