Thousands of Bunnies to be Shot in Easter Celebration
Kiwis are generally known for being kind, considerate, and peace-loving -- but come Easter time, bunnies beware. In what has become a national tradition of sorts in New Zealand, this holiday weekend hundreds of hunters will take to the hillsides and farmlands with one goal in mind: to kill as many of those cute, fluffy bunnies as they can. In years past, over 20,000 of bunnies have been shot dead in the hunt, and this year is expected to be no different. Shocking, I know -- but what's even more so is that it's all for a noble cause.
