Giant rabbits to feed North Korea January 20, 2007

North Korea is yet another of thoses really successful peoples’ republics – where I’m certain the higher tiers of government and business don’t struggle to enjoy life, but where the average member of the public is close to starving at all times. At least the government is actually aware of this issue, rather than being in denial, and has decided to try to breed giant rabbits to feed their population. Sounds stupid, but rabbits breed like rabbits; and these rabbits are up to 10kg in weight already, which is enough rabbit meat to feed 8 people. Once they get a breeding population up to size (so to speak) then all they need is grass, or waste vegetable mass, and the rabbits will keep feeding them. Good idea, I think. Rabbit is a tasty meat as well – particularly in a stew.

I’ve never particularly fancied visiting North or South Korea, and this article doesn’t help to change my mind. […]
