Book: Stories Rabbits Tell
"Stories Rabbits Tell: A Natural and Cultural History of a Misunderstood Creature" by S. Davis & M. Demello
Information/insight on life and history of animal many love, but barely know. Animal emotions, intelligence, welfare & how human perceptions influence treatment of individual species.
Rabbit as wild animal, ancient symbol, pop culture icon, commercial "product" & domesticated pet. Explores one species adored as a symbol of childhood, symbol of female sexuality (Playboy Bunnies) and loathed as pest in the wild.
Stereotypes are countered with analyses of real rabbit behavior, both from authors' experience and academic studies, and place those behaviors in context of debates on animal consciousness.
A detailed investigative section describes conditions in the rabbit meat, fur, pet and vivisection industries, and raise important questions about the ethics of treating rabbits as we do.
