The first time I saw it, they were at $13k. And that was about a month or so ago. So maybe people are gullible enough to send money.

Good, let him eat that little bastard. Rabbits suck, they get way too much attention, they are just overrated animals that need to be eaten.

He could get to $49 999.99 and still eat toby (or so he says). And then all that money has gone to waste (at least for the stupid donators)

What's the difference between taking a fuzzy little domestic rabbit's life, or going out and killing a wild one? I'm going to start a website that people can donate money to stop me from killing a deer every year during hunting season. I get $50k every year and I won't go buy a license. If not, Bambi's gonna get it .

Snopes has an interesting take on it.

The date on this seems to keep getting pushed back too. IIRC the site previously said the deadline was the end of March.

The only thing funnier than the people getting upset are the people supposedly sending donations.

FOX 5 news round here had a whole half minute segment on it complete with commentary from some animal rights activist. How dumb are these people that this was during prime time news. Must've been a real slow news day... or rather they were just stupid.
