hey,

so I did what you all said and asked him point blank what he would be doing with the rabbit. This is what I wrote him
"I'm sorry but you made it sound a little suspicious as to what your intentions are with the photography of the rabbits. I understand someone stating they want privacy during, but it's just the way you said it. Hopefully you understand my only concern is the safety and welfare of my rabbits. So may I ask why I may not be there? "

And guess what the guy wrote back!!??

"What does it matter what I do with the rabbits? They will be perfectly safe you just can't be there when me and the girls take the pictures"

there are some crazy people out there

Maybe he is a 'playboy' photographer

thats the bright side, so no........

Lol Shara loved your comment. so true!

I'm about to write him back and tell him no way! Alot of my friends were saying I should do it anyway but just charge alot of money before hand. If the rabbits came back safe then I could return his deposit. I still dont want my rabbits being in the hands of some creep though. If he had been more polite about it I might have thought about it, or if he had been a professional from Play Boy then I wouldn't mind the cash and it would be neat knowing my rabbits were famous in a Play Boy shoot. lol, but I dont think he's a professional and I dont like how rude he was by saying "why does it matter what I do with them" Im going to write him and say it matters because they're my pets and I care what happens to them!

So I think next time I try this "Rent a bunny for Easter thing" Im only going to call up professional Photographers no creigs list. :-)

Sometimes I wonder if it shouldn't be named 'creeps list'

Gees (and I have had some, um interesting sales, let's just say that by now I'm pretty sure that there *MAY* be some pretty red jackrabbits, as I'm pretty sure that just dumping rabbit in a large "rabbit wire -yes it's a type of wire fence" 'pasture' isn't going to work so well....
Even if they are, um, er free range...
I was tempted to point out that just putting a feeder out would do much the same thing cheaper, if he was after meat, but, hey, they were willing to pay, and mister meany (and his rather sweet brother) got to run 'free'...

yeah I wrote him back saying Im sorry but I cant let you borrow my rabbits for that reason because they are expensive purbred show rabbits but more importantly they are my pets and I care about their well being. I didnt hear back from him for a few days, so I was relieved that he had stopped talking to me, but today I got another message from him. Heres is the rabbit drama message lol:


"Ok, now I know you are just making stuff up. There is not such thing as a pure bred show bunny. I was watching TV last week and I saw the famous Westminister Dog Show. I sure didn't see any bunnies on the stage.

So anyway, I need the bunnies for a photo shoot. What's it to you what I do with them? They will not be harmed in any way. But since you are being Ms. Nosey Nelly I'll try to explain.

My friend and I are marketing majors and we are doing an anti-fur ad. We want to put the bunnies in a pictures that advocate anti-fur ads. We have some traps and we are going to put the pretty little bunnies standing inside the traps. With the caption "Could you kill this bunny?" Stuff like that.

Bunnies in Russia are hunted by pit bulls. We are going to have a pit bull snarling at the bunny and say "Is this the proper way to hunt a bunny?"

So when can we pick them up? I will pay extra if I can soak one in Chicken blood. It washes right off.


so it seems this guy is a complete idiot! hmm I wonder why you didnt see any rabbits at a DOG show, could it be beacuse it was for dogs! And he serously thinks that it would be ok to put my poor baby bunnies next to a snarling dog and dip them in chicken blood! I dont know if I should even waste my time writing this guy back or if I can find some way to block him.

Gee Rabbit13,
that Guy sounds like such a nice fella!
and quite intelligent TOO! How old is that guy?
maybe 3 or 4 Yrs old. He doesn't act like he could be much older than that.
Could it be that he has just never seen a rabbit and feels that
Rabbits and Dogs are the same animal, just with different names?
A mind is a terrible thing to waste or LOSE! :whistle:

Hmmm. I think this man needs to learn about GOOGLE.

I don't think I'd let him put my rabbits in an anti-fur ad, considering one major rabbit market is fur.

I think that this guy is going to get a reality check when he actually graduates (since he said marketing major that infers he's still in college, right?) and people don't give him any work due to the fact that he's acting like a, pardon my French, a butthead.

I'd be happy to email him back for you, I loooooove PETA people :twisted:

I'd send back, that you can't support him and is agenda, as you raise rabbits for show, fur and meat, and that such an add would adversely affect your income.
