One of the dark side of easter ! not only the chicks are abused .. Rabbits too !
artificial food coloring is used to make certain food and beverages look more appealing — regardless if it is healthy or not. Some Americans are more likely to pick up a food item off the grocery store’s shelf if it is represented in a colorful rather than a bland way.

Could this situation possibly be the same for live animals?

For over 45 years, dyeing animals has been against the law in Florida. However, a recent bill was passed in the Florida Legislature that would lift this ban. On a whim, pet store customers might not stop to consider the responsibility of caring for these animals long term.

Since these colorful animals are usually purchased on impulse to please children and impress relatives on Easter, the dyed chicks, ducklings and baby rabbits often end up abandoned, neglected or dropped off at overburdened animal shelters.

“It’s an insult to the public and animal rights community, with the greatest offense being committed toward the animals themselves,” University of Central Florida student, Anthony Gallegos said. “The ban was probably put into place for good reason.”

The current Florida law prohibiting artificial coloring and sale of certain animals and fowls; construction (828.161) states: 1. It is unlawful for any person to dye or color artificially any animal or fowl, including but not limited to rabbits, baby chickens, and ducklings, or to bring any dyed or colored animal or fowl into this state. 2. It is unlawful for any person to sell, offer for sale, or give away as merchandising premiums, baby chickens, ducklings, or other fowl under four weeks of age or rabbits under two months of age to be used as pets, toys or retail premiums. 3. This section shall not be construed to apply to any animal or fowl, including but not limited to rabbits, baby chickens, and ducklings to be used or raised for agricultural purposes by persons with proper facilities to care for them or for poultry or livestock exhibitions. 4. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
