  • Sony Pictures apologizes for ‘Peter Rabbit’ scene, saying it ‘made light’ of food allergies

    02/12/2018 3:46:49 AM PST · by Libloather · 33 replies
    Critics have found a number of ways to describe Sony Pictures’ new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s mischievous yet beloved bunny, “Peter Rabbit.” The modern Peter Rabbit is a frat bro, a “raging narcissist,” a vandal that escalates a feud into a “truly sadistic display of violence.” Now, the bunny character has been billed as something else — a food allergy bully. The scene prompted intense backlash from allergy advocacy groups and parents of children with food allergies, who said it mocked an attack that in real life could have proved fatal. The segment led to a hashtag — #boycottpeterrabbit —...

    President Trump’s proposed border wall has been hotly debated as a political, economic and human rights issue ever since it emerged as a signature part of his campaign platform. But it’s also a major conservation issue, wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin argues. “The impact will be huge. It will be an environmental catastrophe,” Corwin told CBS News on Wednesday. Corwin, a nature conservationist known for his television work on the cable network Animal Planet, is concerned that the wall will dramatically disrupt what has been “nature’s corridor through North and South America” for millions of years now. At least 89 endangered...

    An Ohio truck driver is being credited for his warm heart and his ability to pay attention to things others may have overlooked. When Dan O’Grady passed a little dog on the side of the highway in Florida, he knew he had to do something. He pulled over on the next exit and walked back to find the little dog. The frantic Jack Russell terrier barked at O’Grady and continued to run away from him every time he got close. O’Grady refused to give up and followed the terrier into the woods by the highway. Underneath a bush, O’Grady saw...

    An animal lover who claims to look after stray cats at home has been caught butchering the felines before selling them to restaurants, according to Chinese media. Sickening images have emerged showing dozens of cats killed, frozen and even decapitated at the man's tiny warehouse in Chengdu, south-west China. An undercover investigation carried out by the local Chengdu Business Daily revealed that the man, named Huang Fuping, sold the dead cats as rabbits to meat vendors in rural China for 20 yuan per kilogram (Ł2.3).

  • [March 27, 2015] March Hares Hopping on the Rabbit Bandwagon

    Rabbits aren't just for snuggling. They are, in fact, for eating. Though rabbit meat's last heyday (at least in the United States) was during World War II when most of the beef was shipped to troops overseas, the consumption of rabbit meat is again on the rise. While some might find the notion of eating something so cute quite difficult to stomach (Whole Foods' decision to start selling the white meat at select stores in 2014 was met with boycotts and protested by groups such as the House Rabbit Society), the meat has historically been embraced by different cultures and...
  • Researcher Finds Rare Vietnamese Rabbit

    A rare and elusive rabbit has been found, held and photographed by a researcher from the University of East Anglia (UEA). The Annamite Striped rabbit, found in the forests of Laos and Vietnam, was first documented by rabbit expert Dr Diana Bell and colleagues from UEA’s School of Biological Sciences in the journal Nature in 1999. It has rarely been seen since. Researcher Sarah Woodfin, who is studying for a Masters in Applied Ecology and Conservation at UEA, set out on a three-month expedition to track the recently-discovered rabbit and study its habitat. But she didn’t expect to see one...

    Whole Foods Market has been selling rabbit meat for a few months in Northern California and Washington, D.C., but it hasn’t been an easy process. Nor has it been without controversy, according to a recent Fox News report. When it first offered rabbit meat, the grocery store chain issued a press release carefully explaining why it took four years to set up an acceptable production process as well as its own set of standards: Take into account that rabbits are social creatures. Require living conditions with continuous access to water, food, and other necessary items. Treat injured animals. Careful breeding...

    Yutu entered a controlled hibernation mode despite mechanical problems on Jan. 24 to weather the 14-day lunar night cycle, but should have woken up days ago. China's mission control has yet to offer an official statement of failture, though it did report that Yutu did not wake up on schedule and was not responding to stimuli.

However very few details have emerged or been released by the Chinese government about Yutu’s condition or fate.

    who created Nelson Mandela memorial included a RABBIT inside his earA 30ft sculpture of Nelson Mandela has angered South African officials as the sculptors left a ‘signature’ on the artwork – a sculpted rabbit tucked inside one of the bronze ears. The bronze memorial, which was unveiled outside the government complex in Pretoria, after Mandela’s funeral on December 16, is billed as the largest statue of the South African leader in the world. Officials demand that the miniature rabbit is to be removed from the statue, claiming it mocks Mandela and his life’s work. The department of arts and culture...

    OZARK, Mo. — This summer, Marty the Magician got a letter from the U.S. government. It began with six ominous words: “Dear Members of Our Regulated Community . . .” Washington had questions about his rabbit. Again. Marty Hahne, 54, does magic shows for kids in southern Missouri. For his big finale, he pulls a rabbit out of a hat. Or out of a picnic basket. Or out of a tiny library, if he’s doing his routine about reading being magical. To do that, Hahne has an official U.S. government license. Not for the magic. For the rabbit. The Agriculture Department requires...
