Stop Sickos From Mutilating Wild Rabbits’ Ears With Keychains

Target: Jed Whitchurch, Sergeant of Illinois Department of Natural Resources

Goal: Find and punish person responsible for cruelly piercing the ears of wild rabbits.

Someone has been piercing the ears of wild rabbits and hanging odd objects from the piercings. Multiple wild rabbits have been seen with key chains and even metro passes hanging from their pierced ears. Piercing a rabbit’s ear can damage their hearing, which is critical for their survival. Their ears also play an important role in controlling their body temperature.

Locals from the area have reportedly been trapping the rabbits and removing the cruel objects, but their efforts haven’t been very successful so far. This trend needs to be stopped immediately before more people are encouraged toward this senseless animal cruelty. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that authorities make it a priority to find the people responsible and harshly punish them.


Dear Sergeant Whitchurch,

Someone has been mutilating the ears of wild rabbits and using ear piercings to hang objects from them. The wild animals have been spotted with metro passes and key chains hanging from their ears.

This act of senseless animal cruelty must be stopped before it becomes a trend to mutilate innocent animals. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to utilize all possible resources to ensure that the piercings be removed from the animals and the people doing this be found and severely punished.

  1. I imagine that the sadistic lowlife/lowlives doing this think they are being cute, imaginative and funny. But they are just cruel animal abusers. They MUST be caught and MUST receive the severest punishment possible.

  2. Darlene Avery says:

    Find this sicko and charge him with this vile cruelty. What a vile human.

  3. Susan Fong says:

    This is animal abuse, and the person responsible must be caught and punished swiftly and severely.

  5. Dear Mr. Jed Whitchurch, Sergeant of Illinois Department of Natural Resources

    you must find and severly punish the person(s) responsible for cruelly piercing the ears of wild rabbits.
    Anyone doing this obvisiously is mentally unstable and must be made an example of and must receive mandatory counseling and take any and all precautions to see that they never or anyone else does this heinous act again.
    Thank you,
    Peace and love to all the animals of the world.

    It never ceases to amaze me the depths of depravity some ppl will stoop to on abusing animals, it’s sickening and they have to be found and severely punished, because something has to send a message to these sick individuals that this type of cruelty won’t be tolerated, especially as what they’re doing will eventually kill these animals, because their ears are what controls their temperature, plus lets them know when danger is near, and once that vital tool is damaged they’re vulnerable to attack from other animals, because they can’t hear as well, it’s a wicked world we live in, when torture of animals is considered not worth the courts time, plus the perpetrators face no real consequences when caught ?

  7. You do have some stupid, sick subhumans in Illinois. Is this acceptable to you? Or do you intend to act? Do the right thing. This is not clever or funny, these animals will die. Nip this pathetic idea in the bud. Prosecute.

    Death wish for these animal abusing bastards! I would very much like to meet these POS face to face!!!!

  9. Kristin Peterson says:

    Find these evil sick freaks and pierce their entire bodies with bullets!
    The world doesn’t need useless animal abusing trash like this roaming free!

  10. What has gone wrong that so many freaks are born? Why are parent(s) not observant enough to see in which direction their offspring moves? Perhaps when early detected a shrink may be able to iron out their mental/emotional short comings!

  11. How about we pierce his penis WITH A HAMMER!!! If it’s a she, we do her privates with a hammer as well! Stupid f*cking pieces of shit like this so-called human should be put out of our misery!!

    Signed & shared❗️?

  13. Tina Colafranceschi says:

    These people need to be found and killed if they can do this to defenseless animal women & children could be next and some one like that doesn’t need to be breeding we need population control and they don’t need to be here
