Bad day? Lucky you’re not a factory farmed rabbit

In March 2017 the European Parliament responded to pressure from Compassion in World Farming supporters, and voted in support of protection for farmed rabbits. This historic vote, which backed a report calling for the end of caged rabbit farming, was a real breakthrough. But we must keep up the pressure if we are to see a change in the law. If you live in the EU, please email your Agriculture Minister today.

99% of rabbits farmed for meat in Europe are confined in cages, often in a space so small that most basic natural behaviours are severely impaired. They are unable to hop, skip or jump, to choose when to be alone or to seek companionship, or even to stretch.

The landmark Parliamentary vote to call for an end to caged rabbit farming was a huge achievement. And it came only after Compassion supporters collected over 600,000 petition signatures, wrote letters and emails, and even sent children’s drawings showing MEPs how rabbits ought to live – running free.

Take action

If you are an EU resident, please use the form below to email your Agriculture Minister. Once you submit the form you will be able to review and edit your email before sending it. If you live outside the EU, please click here for other actions you can take for farm animals.

Now, it’s down to the Agricultural Ministers to make the welfare of rabbits a priority, and persuade the European Commission to introduce a new law. So far these Ministers have taken no action. But, united, we can make our voices heard.

Caged rabbit farming is cruelty on a colossal scale. It is inhumane, and unnecessary. Please write to your Minister and ask them to put the welfare of rabbits on the agenda of the upcoming Agriculture Council meetings.
