      EBAA Exposes the Rabbit Meat Industry

      Each year over eight million rabbits are raised and slaughtered for
      their meat by approximately 200,000 producers across the United States.
      Known primarily as a cottage industry, American rabbit meat production
      is largely unregulated by the federal, state and local authorities.

      The United States Department of Agriculture classifies rabbits as
      poultry. Designated as farm animals, meat rabbits are denied legal
      protection by the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act and Animal Welfare
      Act.

      In 2006, East Bay Animal Advocates (EBAA) documented conditions at
      Cloverdale Rabbit Company, California's second largest commercial
      rabbit meat slaughterhouse.
