And some Greens-related weirdness was on hand during the man's court appearance:
Australian Companion Rabbit Society president Lara Nettle turned up yesterday at the hearing. She later claimed the rabbit was symbolically and historically connected with human female sexuality. In bizarre comments, Ms Nettle, who is the sister-in-law of the Greens senator for NSW, Kerry Nettle, said prostitutes "used to be known as bunnies".Hang on. She doesn't appear to be condemning the bunny-fiddling. And she seems to think rabbits are pretty sexy. Is the Rabbit Companion whatever Society Australia the peak lobby group for that kind of rabbit "companionship"? Euw.
"You'd obviously be aware of the Playboy bunny - that is probably the most blatant rabbit sexualisation there is," she said. "There is the rampant fecundity of rabbit sexuality. "They are known as sexual beings . . . they have sex all the time, they are very prolific in terms of their reproduction. It's not something that could be easily controlled."
