Target: Radio24syv President, Jorgen Ramskov
Goal: Punish radio presenter who allegedly bludgeoned a rabbit to death while on live radio.
A Danish radio presenter reportedly killed a rabbit while he was live on the air. The presenter, Asger Juhl, allegedly bludgeoned the rabbit three times with a bicycle pump before the rabbit died. Juhl was attempting to make a statement about animal welfare, but went too far when he killed a baby rabbit.
The intent of the stunt was to discuss the hypocrisy of animal welfare. Juhl felt as though it was hypocritical that the public is willing to eat the meat and buy it in stores, but not kill it themselves. Juhl reportedly also took the dead rabbit home with him to eat, claiming it is not wrong to kill and then eat the animal. The rabbit, who they called Alan, was just nine weeks old when he was clubbed to death.
The invited guest on the station that day was an animal rights activist. She came into the studio and saw the rabbit, and assumed their plan. She attempted to save the rabbit from Juhl, but failed. She was disturbed, and asserted that it does not matter what statement someone is trying to make, it does not have to be at the expense of an animals life. Many members of the public were horrified, and claimed that the station clearly did not do it for a statement, but rather for ratings.
This is an unnecessary death. No matter what statement is being made, the life of an animal should never be considered as part of it. A nine-week-old rabbit was killed on live radio, where unsuspecting listeners had to hear it. Please punish this man for his lack of consideration for the rabbit and his listeners.
Dear President Ramskov,
A baby rabbit was recently killed on live radio. The individual responsible claims it was necessary in order to make a statement, and that it reveals the hypocrisy in animal welfare. However, it was not necessary to kill a rabbit on live radio, where the world could hear. The invited animal rights activist also had to sit in the studio as this happened.
There is no message worth telling that is at the expense of another’s life. Please punish those responsible for this uncalled-for death, and continue to prevent situations such as this from occurring.
[Your Name Here]
