Pet rabbit stolen from Preschool, Activists to Blame?

This story comes to us from Washington. To me, it is a despicable act to take a bunny from a group of children in order to make your point for animal rights. Left in the cage, in place of the bunny, were fliers protesting against the circus......tell me how this makes any sense? I have when people feel the need to go overboard to make their point.
________________

SPOKANE, Wash. — (AP Story) Children at a downtown preschool got an unplanned lesson in animal rights activism when their pet rabbit was stolen and anti-circus fliers were left in the animal's cage.
Sugar Bunny vanished from the Community Building Children's Center during a celebration of building renovations Saturday evening, teachers said.

"Somebody stoled him," 5-year-old Zion told The Spokesman-Review, which gave only the first names of him and other children in a report on the heist. "I'm sad."
Lori Peters, a teacher, said watching, petting and playing with Sugar Bunny helped the little children overcome separation anxiety. The theft is being reported to police but it's unclear whether the preschool will find a new pet, she added.

The fliers that were left were for protests against the Ringling Brothers Circus, which was in town Friday through Sunday, and showed a picture of a bear trying to escape beneath the bars of a cage. Listed at the bottom were People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Northwest Animal Rights Network.

Daphna Nachminovitch, director of PETA's domestic animal department, said the group would not endorse stealing a pet bunny.

"Just like dogs and cats, (rabbits) have been domesticated, so we encourage people who have the knowledge and ability to adopt rabbits from their local shelters," Nachminovitch said.
Teachers gathered the children in a circle Monday to remember Sugar Bunny, some by drawing pictures and others by writing songs.

"We talked about how some people have different ideas about animals," Peters. "Some people don't think they should be in cages."

For all the good things PETA does, there are too many bad things their members do to prove their point. It's too bad it has to come to this.

This is totally despicable. As you know I am NOT a PETA fan. I wish they could see the carnage that happens to little bunnies when they are released in the wild to be the bottom of the food chain.
