If you like animals, probably shouldn't watch, i didn't Danish radio host kills baby rabbit during broadcast to make statement about meat-eaters (VIDEO) BY Lee Moran NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, May 27, 2015, 10:30 AM A Danish radio show announcer has sparked outrage after he battered a baby rabbit to death while broadcasting. Asger Juhl was hosting a debate about animal welfare live on air Sunday morning on Radio24syv when he hit the 9-week-old bunny, named Alan, three times over the head with a bicycle pump, reports the Guardian. He claimed the slaughtered baby animal twitched several times before dying. Juhl — who took the dead critter home and skinned it with his two children to make rabbit ragout — said he carried out the stunt "to demonstrate the hypocrisy of animal campaigners who eat meat from supermarkets." But the shocking segment triggered a furious backlash, with activists and regular listeners slamming the "unnecessary death" of the animal. "Don't try and justify it you heartless b*stards, the only reason you killed a small, defenceless animal on air is to boost your ratings," wrote Stan Kosjaks on the station's Facebook page. "Sickening how @Radio24syv presenter Asger Juhl has killed a rabbit 'on air' so as to prove a point to animal rights protesters. #firehim," Mark Lief posted on Twitter.

Few things rile me up more than people abusing animals with lame justifications," added Simon Edward. Animal rights group PETA's director Mimi Bekhechi dubbed the behavior as "sickening" and called for Juhl to be charged with animal cruelty. Juhl, however, defended his actions. "Many people in Denmark are frustrated about us killing the rabbit but at the same time they are having meat for dinner," he told the BBC's Radio 4. "They are not taking into account that you are supposed to kill an animal before you eat meat. Let me ask you a question. Why would it be wrong to kill an animal and then eat it?" he said.
