Bunny Bust: SPCA Raids Home, Confiscates 21 Malnourished Rabbits in Oakland

Animal officials stormed a Lake Merritt home in Oakland Tuesday night and scooped up 21 deformed and malnourished bunnies who were being prepped to be eaten. Now, they are looking to find these precious rabbits a new home after so much suffering, according to news reports.

Megan Webb, director

of Oakland animal services, told the Chronicle that while it's legal to raise animals for food, the scene of malnourished and frightened bunnies clearly wasn't okay. “This blurs the lines for animal cruelty. When is it okay to raise

something for food, and when is it cruelty?” she said.
