In the guardian online today

Fluffy bunch? The serious business of small animal shows – photo essay

If the link does not work then it is on their website under photo essay in their arts section. The article features very poor rabbit handling and one picture that I found really quite sickening.

Disgusting the way they handle rabbits. Grasping the ears, turning them over... just like they are a piece of meat, void of feelings with no acknowledgement of the rabbits need for respect of person and dignity.
Same as dogs and cats are handled in the show world. Breeders/showers are 3/4 barbarian!

All shows like that should be banned,  look at the crufts show which has caused inbreeding,  deformed dogs(boxers noses aren't natural)  and sick dogs.

I agree with the calls to ban these shows. They're no environment for an animal No
