Did you think Norwegians were cruel, with the whaling and in general insistance that hunting for food is OK? Perhaps we should learn from this guy, who is blackmailing the world at savetoby.com. Unless YOU pay 50 000 $, Toby, the cute little bunny, will be eaten on the 30th of June. There are pictures and recipes, for those who doubt the resolve of the man about to eat a rabbit.
This is a brilliant idea. Rather than defending the whaling as a matter of research, Norwegians should just say: Yes, it’s cruel, but pay us XXX XXX XXX$ for each whale we would otherwise kill, and we’ll find some other research to do. And if a rabbit, who looks like he can’t weigh more than a kilo or two, is worth 50 000 $, imagine what a whale would mean for the research funds of Norway!
