I was disturbed recently to hear of a fashion designer being harassed about the placement of rabbit fur trim on a jacket collar of her latest design. Apparently the protesters arrived with buckets of fake blood (do they carry this stuff around in their car?) and the anti fur campaigners rattled sticks and stuck pins in her effigy until she relented and removed the trim. What's wrong with these people? I'm afraid the animal is dead. You can hook it up to an electro cardio graph and hit it with a thousand volts shouting "clear" but it ain't coming back. It was a rabbit. The principle ingredient of a stew. Also known to attack vegetation in plague proportions. Honestly if you attached a locust on to your lapel someone would be jumping up and down (obviously the locust initially but then it would probably stop) about cruelty. Foxes, rabbit, rats, pigeons, ample opportunity to recycle them all with a bit of imagination. And as for the fake blood splattering brigade it's only a matter of time before someone attacks them a sharpened vegetable or two.
