Rabbits Are Not Easter Toys

To The Reader’s Forum:

Rabbits are living, breathing, feeling animals who have special needs and can live 10+ years. They require fresh vegetables, hay and water daily. Bunnies need to be cared for inside with enough room to run and play.

The sad truth is that 95 percent of the rabbits purchased as gifts at Easter are surrendered at shelters or worse: abandoned outside where they cannot survive. Most are dead before their first birthday.

Please do not add to this statistic! Consider a stuffed animal instead or do as I do: make mine chocolate.
