Last week, a petition went around my office for people to sign to say that they opposed the extermination of the bunny rabbits that hop and gambol around the Civic Centre. (Before signing it, I checked the date to ensure we hadn't skipped ahead to April 1st.) I tried to imagine what the headline would be in the local paper: "Council Kills Bunnies At Easter", probably.
Today, good news came around on the internal staff email. The bunnies are safe, and, should they ever need to be moved, they will be humanely caught and released at a suitable location.
If that ever happens, I'm going to be eyeing the stew in the canteen with deep misgivings.
