(AU) AR group to protest MasterChef judge

ANIMAL welfare activists will protest outside MasterChef judge George Calombaris' flagship restaurant in Melbourne tomorrow night in an effort to stop him promoting factory farmed rabbits.

Protesters from the Freedom for Farmed Rabbits group say the celebrity chef's promotion of rabbit meat on the hit TV show MasterChef and his award-winning restaurants has seen a rise in factory farming of the animals.

They are calling on Calombaris to make a "compassionate decision" to "stop endorsing and promoting this unfathomable cruelty". They say
rabbit farmers have attributed Calombaris' promotion of rabbit with an "increase in sales and the ability to expand their sheds".
