Wow … I don’t know how true this is, but it’s bizarre (thanks Trudy). SaveToby.com has been set up by a (seemingly) anonymous author who will reportedly cook and eat his pet Rabbit Toby unless $50,000 USD is donated through the site. Another site, KillToby.com is reportedly trying to raise $55,000 USD to pay Toby’s owner to go through with his plan.
If this is legit, I’m thinking both sites are linked, and either way, are well on their way to make some money. Already over $15,000 has been made (on SaveToby.com), and there is merchandise for sale as well.
Hmmmmm … whatever happened to an honest living?
Update: I checked out Snopes.com. Those that know the site, will know that Snopes specializes in sniffing out Internet hoaxes. And, it appears that SaveToby, as suspected, is a hoax. However, the money is being collected to buy SaveToby gear. Still, quite the business.
