They are holding a bunny hostage in Europe too - goes by the name of Bernd.

Double trouble...

His paypal button is not working so I used his email address and sent him a rabbit recipe.

It's a scam. He's not really going to slaughter him. It's a game. He only wants the $50,000. On the slaughter day, he'll just post a notice saying "I didn't get enough money. Sorry Toby's going to die. Then he'll happily walk away with $60k. Who's to say those figures are correct at the bottom? The recipes are all pushing viewers to donate.

When I first saw it the "deadline" was 28th February!

Still a great idea though :)

Hey, if you are willing to give, obviously it was a good ploy. ;)

I don't think he's actually got that amount of cash at all...

It's a 'buskers hat'

Which, for those who enjoy Carp fishing, will have a very good understanding.... tricky devils....

I think the "ransom" is just a red herring (to keep with the fishing metaphors). This is a brilliant and very deliberate attempt to create a hampsterdance/Mahir type viral phenomenon.

I expect a very busy shop. That's quite a range of products he's got.

Theres not enough there to put between two buns. The most he'll get out of that thing (from the butcher) is a lucky rabbits foot.
