    The decision to use Stockholm’s rabbit cadavers as bioenergy to warm Swedes living in Värmland doesn't sit well with Stockholm-based animal rights activists.

    “Those who support the culling of rabbits surely think it’s good to use the bodies for a good cause. But it feels like they’re trying to turn the animals into an industry rather than look at the main problem,” Anna Johannesson of Vilda kaniners värn (‘Society for the Protection of Wild Rabbits’) told the local Vårt Kungsholmen newspaper.

    I don't see a problem with this. They can skin them first and make some nice earmuffs.

    My cousin lives in an old farmhouse in Denmark. They bought a commercial oven to heat their house. On really cold nights the family sleeps on the kitchen floor. And they are not poor.

    God bless socialism.

    "That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on! That rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer! He's got huge, sharp... er... He can leap about. Look at the bones! He's got nasty, big, pointy teeth!"
