As you could gather this bill board is made of Rabbit skins. Showed this to the family. Most of them didnt have a word to put to it. Whats your thoughts?

That looks like the sort of advertising you would find in America. I imagine many have already complained.

l43a2: rabbits are pests.


I know they are. I grew up on a farm with a 22 in one hand and rabbit in the other.
Still a pretty wrong feat of advertising.

Why do you think it is wrong?

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Really?

I thought they just put the skin. I don't see any difference between my belt made from crocodile skin and this billboard.

I still find it rather disgusting and inappropriate. I don't care if they sell Rabbit Pizza, but sticking Rabbit skin on a billboard is gross.

Meh, no problem with the billboard. Not really different to possum pelts (no problem at all there!) or leather etc.
Am interested to try rabbit pizza now tho!

Cheers,
Joseph

What if they coated it in leather?

The skins were sourced from a tanning company, who gets the skins from a meat processing company.  Just like leather.

What exactly are you upset about?

Would you have a problem with a sign covered in leather?
