|On Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent years of his life in prison, thousands of brown rabbits have been congregating to protest the presence of black and white rabbits on the mainland.|
The rabbits are threatened by local authorities because their pellets are seen as a denigration to the historical site where Mandela delved in law books and ate some of the very lepus capensis in question.
A rabbitspeaker remained intransigent: "those black and white rabbits are eating all our carrots and making dens in the most fertile soil. We want equal rights to the land now and not later!"
Calls to speakers of the black and white rabbit colony were left unanswered.
