TV Host Disappoints with "Hare"Brained Stunt

It was disappointing this evening to see a small rabbit used in conjunction with implied violence as a publicity stunt on TV. Earlier today I heard Glenn Beck's TV show had something to do with a bunny. So I tuned into his show where he was holding a small white and black rabbit (looked like a Hotot), while he spoke. After a few minutes he handed off the rabbit to pick-up a chainsaw. Several times he threatened to use the chainsaw before the end of the show on the rabbit. The bunny was off camera for most of the show and was obviously never in any danger. However, any suggestion of violent harm to animals on TV is disturbing.
