Dear Rabbit Advocates,
The FWC Legal Staff and a State Attorney Office's prosecutor have provided the opinion that the use of rabbits as live prey items does not violate Florida Statutes regarding animal cruelty. Therefore, no follow- up investigation into the matter of rabbits being used as prey items by wildlife rehabilitators is warranted at this time.
FWC and the FWC Inspector General continue to ignore the fact that videos of rehabbing bobcats torturing and killing tame domestic rabbits still remain online on various BCR Website Accounts which is a violation of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) 68A-9.006. FWC/ FWC Inspector General continue to ignore Letters from other Wildlife Centers and Professionals proving the Live feeding of Domestic Rabbits is not logical or a necessary requirement for successful rehab and they continue to condone and encourage this barbaric animal cruelty.
Please go to the Cause page website for details on filing new
complaint which will also be addressed to Mike Deeson the Senior Investigative
Reporter for 10 News.
Thank you for your continued support,
For The Rabbits,
