Stop Providing Rabbits as Carnival Prizes

Rabbit M. L. Haen

Target: Dwayne James, President of James Gang Amusement Inc.

Goal: Don’t supply rabbits as carnival prizes.

James Gang Amusement Inc. provides carnival supplies to carnivals across the nation, including carnival prizes. Some of these prizes include live rabbits. This means that many rabbits are given as prizes to families who are not ready for the responsibility of owning a rabbit.

Many of these rabbits are neglected, brought to overcrowded shelters, left outside to fend for themselves, or passed along from house to house. Each situation is scary for the rabbits for different reasons. In many cases they are left alone and isolated with no comfort. In other situations, they must fend for their life or else they could get injured or die.

Sign this petition and demand that James Gang Amusement Inc. stop providing rabbits as prizes. Animals are not objects and should not be treated as such.


Dear Mr. James,

Your company provides carnival supplies to carnivals across the nation. Some of these supplies are prizes that include live rabbits. Many of the families given rabbits as prizes are not ready for the responsibility.

In many cases, the novelty of the new pet wears off. Many rabbits are brought to overcrowded shelters where they could spend the rest of their lives neglected and isolated. Some rabbits are moved from house to house, which gives the animal no consistency. And sadly, other rabbits are left outside to fend for themselves where they could become severely injured or die.

Animals are not objects or property and should not be treated as such. Please consider no longer providing rabbits as prizes but instead stuffed animal rabbits. By making this simple switch, you would spare numerous rabbit lives from misery.

    LIVE ANIMALS as prizes…you’ve GOT TO BE KIDDING!
    NEVER should this be allowed to happen, ANYWHERE!!!

  2. What ever reason you have for doing this just doesn’t justify it. Stop using any animals as prizes. Every animal I’ve seen given away has met a horrible end. Rabbits usually end up with children; the worst owners possible for responsibility.
    They don’t take the time to learn how to handle, raise, care or love them. The parents aren’t prepared for learning about them and usually don’t know a hill of beans about these sweet creatures. Some kids are way to young for any animals. Bunnies are extremely difficult to properly care for. They are fragile and suffer from broken bones when dropped, which happens alot with kids. When their ears are pulled, they suffer permanent hearing loss, leading to disassociation with their owners. Their diets are too complicated for children to understand, causing them severe belly aching and death. They are very emotional and, like us, are often stuffed away in cages and isolated in solitary confinement. There, they live in constant fear of entrapment an long for freedom. It is an instinct that they are all born with. So, if you have a good soul, you would stop the evil; that’s what you’d call it if it happened to you. Please don’t be a part of animal abuse any longer.
