You guys may remember that I blogged this story a while back, who knew that poor Robert was destined for the dinner table of the little dictator….cd
BERLIN: A German farmer who sold 12 giant rabbits to North Korea with the aim of setting up a breeding program to alleviate famine has said he was shocked to hear they were eaten at Kim Jong-il’s birthday banquet.
Karl Szmolinsky sent his oversized bunnies to Pyongyang to boost meat production. Der Spiegel reported that the 68-year-old breeder had been due to travel to North Korea to help set up the farm, but had received a telephone call last week from an official cancelling the trip.
Among the rabbits sent to North Korea late last year was Robert, a monster who won a prize as Germany’s largest rabbit.
