    Baby rabbits and bicycle pumps

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/27/wo...re-debate.html

    'A radio station in Denmark argued Tuesday that it was merely fulfilling its public service mandate to provoke debate when the host of a morning show beat
    a baby rabbit to death with a bicycle pump this week during a live discussion of animal welfare.'

    A bicycle pump?

    I don't see why the animal had to die to prove the point, although the point is valid. Seems more like a publicity stunt than anything.
