Let us know if/when you get a response?

I don't really understand some people, yes I have 'house bunnies' but know that rabbits (like sheep, cattle and chickens) are multi purpose animals and there's thousands of people who eat rabbit instead of other meats... I've seen posts of other 'house bunny' forums complaining about how people here in Australia "kill innocent bunnies" - umm, they're feral rabbits and are the reason we need vaccinations against Myxo and Calici.

Not to mention that in the Great Depression hundreds of thousands of farming families had nothing to eat but the rabbits they caught

She just wants to free the bunny from your evil, murderous clutches.

Why don't you see the good she's doing?

I think we might be taking these people a little too seriously. Look at their facebook page and you can see that they only have 68 likes. On a social network that big, they're pretty insignificant. Lots of people will like a page without understanding what the promoters stand for.

I would highly recommend cutting all contact with the person immediately and without explanation. These people have the hallmarks of single dimension radicals. They really don't deserve an explanation and will likely use whatever you say against you to the best of their limited ability.

Or somebody else with her in another car.

If you do meet her, maybe you could make it at the beginning of a very full errand day.

Might not be a bad idea to have a neutral meeting place policy in effect for people you've never heard from before. Just because the rescue might try again, except making sure they don't mention the rescue.

I guess it depends on the security you have at your place, though.

NO

Sorry, BUT... OPSEC / INFOSEC (Operational security Informational security)

IE. don't tell her NOTHING, you should have told her, that the rabbit is a 4H bunny, or a FFA project ANYTHING and EVERYTHING but the TRUTH...
These people are buggers in the head, they are STALKERS, and they are the ones that will come after you...

I.E. they will play you to get as much info as they can, shoot you can usually these days find a person if you know at least their name and 'area', that will get an address, they scoop out your setup via sat photos and come do 'recon'

you need to make friends with the local 'dog catcher'

OK, here is where you screwed up. Your Email
BETTER to say nothing, or that your daughter decided to keep her... anything but tell her she's wrong, when someone is to that extreme, they are VERY sure of their own opinion being 'RIGHT' you are wrong, and... lets hope she lets it pass, and NOT take your Email to the next meeting....

I don't let people come to my house PERIOD, I drive out to 'deliver' (when I'm going that way anyways) they have a phone number, dats it unless they pay for a pedicgree

I'd simply wrote an email nicely stating I do not deal with individuals that promote especially work in such groups as selling to them supports their actions and reasoning in my mind. I'd be worried about being used and hunted by the group with the way they have their home page. If you do decide to, I second using a strange vehicle, far away from home, and bring a friend. I wouldn't even give them the home number to call.

aren't those kind of people usually against breeding and only find adopting shelter bunnies acceptable?

UNLESS you are adopting from them, then they charge your (to make sure you value your rabbit) and want to 'teach' you about rabbits, and inspect your home....
and then complain that they have '100 rabbits' (IN UNSANITARY CONDITIONS) they can't move....

Yeah, you're definitely more diplomatic than me. My post would have probably gone something like, "You = crazy. Me = not stooppid. Go way away"
Have to write it like they understand.

BTW - you're avatar left without saying a word MSD.

I agree not to let her near the house but am glad she decided to tell the truth and not lie.

I'm thinking I will only sell rabbits at shows, or do a drop off. Then again I plan on eating what I don't keep so not many worries.

Good luck, and be careful!

If someone wrote me an email saying they "belong to an animal rescue so if it didn't work out they could find the bun a new home", I simply wouldn't have responded back. I wouldn't have added any fuel to upset them, such as saying I am leery of having them come to my house or family, and I do not want them at my place. If someone wrote that to me, it would offend me and I wouldn't like them very much after that. Once it is time to schedule pickup, just say you can meet them at *blank* place and ask if they know how to get there. You don't ever have to mention anything about you not wanting them to come to your house. Just don't bring it up!
