Chef Mario Cassineri of BICE/Ristorante (http://bicesandiego.com/) and chef/owner Stefano Ceresoli of Solare Ristorante and Café Bella (http://www.caffebellaitalia.com/ ) have invited their patrons to attend a “DUELING RABBIT DINNER”at BICE Ristorante in San Diego, California. See invitation at http://tinyurl.com/6vcohv8. One rabbit yields about 4 pounds of “meat” so do the math to calculate the number of domestic rabbits who will meet their demise for this fiasco.
If we raise enough of a ruckus and public pressure, we may be able to get them to cancel the event.

WHAT YOU MAY WANT TO SAY:
According to some estimates, rabbits are the third most popular companion animal in the United States. Rabbit dinners offend those of us who live with our companion rabbits. It is unacceptable to eat animals that are viewed as pets by such a large segment of the population.
