A DJ on a Danish radio station killed a baby rabbit live on air with a bicycle pump.
They claimed that they wanted to highlight cruelty in farming.
The station took to Twitter saying “We didn’t do it for the sake of entertainment” and “Thousands of animals die each day so that people can eat them”.
The rabbit was hit several times on the head by radio host Asger Juhl to highlight the hypocrisy towards Dane’s attitudes to animal welfare.
In a statement the station wrote, “We buy and eat animals that have had an awful life and animals that have been killed in the same controlled conditions as this rabbit in the studio”.
Radio24syv said that it wanted to put the light on “one of the worlds most industrialised agricultural sectors”.
They said “Danish farming allows 25,000 piglets to die each day because farming has been streamlined and breeds pigs that give birth to far more offspring than the mother can handle”.
