Reality of raising rabbits for meat in Spain

Rabbits in the livestock industry face a serious and underestimated problem in Europe. The lack of specific regulations for their welfare has led to inhumane conditions on farms, especially in Spain, the main producer of rabbit meat in the European Union. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reported that 20% of rabbits die before reaching the slaughterhouses.

Although rabbit meat consumption has decreased in recent years, it remains the second most raised and slaughtered animal in Europe for human consumption, with 180 million rabbits per year. The future of rabbit welfare depends on legislative changes and public pressure.

Rescue: from darkness to light

We reveal the heartbreaking details of a nighttime operation that freed four rabbits from the terrible conditions they were living in. In the midst of the harsh reality that animals face on meat farms in Spain, AnimaNaturalis has managed to bring a ray of hope to these four lives.

A light of hope among the immense misery of the industry

What we want most is that each of the rabbits that live under the terrible conditions of the meat industry have the opportunity to run, jump, enjoy the sky above their heads, good food and the opportunity to live with their peers in decent conditions. and natural.

The truth of rabbit farms exposed!

Spain is responsible for the suffering of more than 40 million rabbits in its breeding and fattening farms for meat. According to European authorities, these are the worst possible conditions in the European Union for this type of industry, and almost 20% of rabbits born in these circumstances die before being taken to the slaughterhouse.

We present to you what the industry does not want you to see

Let us make our voices heard to demand that authorities and companies commit to eliminating the use of cages in all intensive farms. The case of rabbits is especially worrying because, although it is the second most raised species in Europe for its meat, it lacks its own animal welfare legislation. They are a defenseless and fragile species. They don't deserve to suffer in these conditions!

Ending the era of cages!

The welfare of rabbits in the European meat industry is a pressing issue that demands immediate attention. The absence of specific regulations has resulted in inhumane conditions on farms, spanning from breeding to slaughter. Despite a decline in rabbit meat consumption, tens of millions of rabbits continue to endure these conditions.

Public pressure and initiatives like #EndTheCageAge represent crucial steps towards change, but more robust legislative action is necessary. The planned review of animal welfare regulations by the European Commission presents a pivotal opportunity to enhance the lives of these animals and ensure that their fundamental rights are upheld within the meat industry.

We demand immediately

We propose the end of factory farms. We can do without animal exploitation and we work to discover the cruel reality that the meat, egg and milk industry hides from us.

With special urgency, we demand:

  1. That the regulations be modified so that the installations of the farms allow the animals to develop their natural behavior without restrictions.

  2. Cage ban on all farms, regardless of species or production cycle.

  3. Prohibition of tail and beak mutilations, removal of tusks and castrations without anesthesia.

  4. Immediate ban on the live chick crushing system as a system for discarding males on farms.

  5. Require a European label that informs about the production system to which animals for meat, dairy products and derivatives are subjected, thus avoiding consumer fraud.

  6. Require own animal welfare legislation for species that do not have it, such as rabbits, turkeys and calves.

  7. Veterinary care focused on the welfare of each animal as an individual and not only on ensuring the survival and productivity of the group on the farm.

  8. The feeding of animals on farms should not only take into account fattening or survival, but the correct nutrition of the animals. It is impossible to talk about well-being if they are not offered balanced and adequate food for their organisms, not just a hypercaloric feed.
