Rabbits of Rotterdam

I was shocked to see an article in the Wall Street Journal about a man named Cees Noorlander form the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands....his nickname: The Rabbitslayer!!

The most disturbing quotes from the story:


  • "That's a small one," he said. "I'll feed it to my ferrets." Jeez, I guess that's good for the ferrets
  • "Ports are especially vulnerable to pesky animals like rabbits and deer " Oh, yea-- run everybody there are rabbits and deer coming for us AAAHHHHHHH!!
  • Mr. Noorlander packs 220 pounds on a frame dedicated to shooting animals. "It's all he talks and dreams about," says his wife, Hettie.....Poor poor Hettie, all he dreams about anymore is killing rabbits!!
  • Other than the occasional hunt with his son RenĂ©, his only companions are his Browning shotgun, a German Longhair Pointer named Rex and 45 ferrets -- all named "Cees" ....I think he's taking a page out of George Foremans book, George named all his kids George....Maybe The Rabbitslayer will start selling a Rabbit Rotisserie Grill.
  • He kills about 50 rabbits per sortie.....I think this man is disturbed!!
  • Rex returned, rabbit in mouth. It was still alive. Mr. Noorlander finished the job with a clean karate chop.....Ooooh Cees you are so strong and tough you Rabbit Killer you !!

Apparently this cold blooded murder of rabbits revolves around a dike problem.....Let me tell you Cees..no one's killing Bunnies over here in the USA over same sex marriage...at least not yet....Oh different kinda dike. Ooops Sorry!

Anyway it seems to me you could find a place for the bunnies!!

Now a ghastly Video!!

Wow, must be a slow day in the celebrity scandal world or politics if the Wall Street Journal has space to feed all of this nordic nonsense .....

Hi, Sharon.

Did you mean that Netherlands is a Nordic country?

I think Norway is a Nordic country.

Poor Holland bunnies.

I was glad to see that Bugs & Donald got Elmer Fud between the eyes! I don't think the bunnies in Holland will have the same good fortune. There must be a better way than just killing the poor creatures - what about bunny "birth control". I think that method of population control has been use in other situations of pest control, although I don't see the bunnies as pests, apparently the Dutch do....

Tom Bunny was appalled when he read this post. He canceled his trip to tulip-land immediately.

TOM said...

Sharon for bunnies this is much bigger than Paris Hilton.

A.I. ..,wait ill they start fighting back,,2 words "Killer Rabbits"

Rabbit,I don't think the Pope would agree with birth control, but I like the idea.

Tom Bunny is mad, I know that. Believe me Cees, you don't want to get the bunny mad.

Hey Tom!
LoL... That is disturbing :/
At least he kills them in a 'hunting' manner. A man in South African recently cut off his Husky puppy's throat with a chain saw after it had killed his parrot.
Sick sick people.

It makes me furious.

Hi Tom, thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

Those poor bunnies, I cant come to terms with the hunting mentality nor the popes ruling on birth control, nor why I turn into psycho woman behind the wheel of a car and come out with all sorts of obsenities that I hadnt realised I'd even learned..but the last one I enjoy :)

Enjoyed reading, great humour.

Stacy said...

I could NOT live in a world without Roger rabbit, seriously.

Sharon said...

That's so funny. Netherlands definitely not a nordic country. My brain was playing tricks with me. I couldn't get past the sad little rabbit photos before I started my brain started to mentally pick and chose what it wanted to remember.

Ferrets eat rabbits?

TOM said...

Dizzy, death by chainsaw is definitely worse.

Audrey, I have more difficulty with some of the Pope's rulings than hunting for sure...

Evan, do they set traps in Australia for the Easter Bunny too?

ChooChoo it's true!

Stacy, "Celluloid Heroes never die"...I think that's the Kinks

Stacy, I was terrible in Geography too!! Your heart is i the right place.

Mist1, apparently...I think Cees likes them with "Fava Beans and a nice Chianti"

Gledwood said...

that is a really entertainingly furry rabbit... how can you even think of rabbit-harm??!

Sally said...

Let's bomb the Netherlands...

toes said...

Hold on SALLY....There has to be a solution with less violence than what you suggest!!!!!!

TOM said...

Sally, not a bad idea but won't the bombs get some bunnies too??

Carol said...

OMG! This really is not good..killing bunnies? How macho!
