North Korea is encouraging its people to breed rabbits for food, the impoverished regime's official media reported Wednesday. "Rabbit-breeding farms have been built to rapidly increase parent rabbits which have a high fertility rate, grow fast and produce much meat with less feed," the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported. The report said rabbits were "the most economically profitable domestic animals" due to the mountainous country's limited arable land. "Rabbits are being raised by collective and widespread methods at factories, enterprises, cooperative farms and schools, to say nothing of stock-breeding farms," KCNA said.
