DO NOT ABANDON PET RABBITS OUTSIDE "IN THE WILD"

IF YOU WANT TO GIVE UP YOUR PET BUNNY - DO NOT JUST "LET IT GO" OUTSIDE!
Domestic pet rabbits do not have the coping skills to survive in the wild. It can be a tortuous death sentence from starvation, predators or parasites.

This beautiful bunny was abandoned in a huge park (while there's a small chance he escaped from his home, no one else appears to be looking for him). This video shows him in the scrub near a parking lot and then munching some hay, pellets and papaya left for him. He's otherwise surviving off the weeds growing through the parking lot cracks. GHRS volunteers were finally able to capture him.

Safe -- and headed to the GHRS bunny rescue shelter

  1. The ignorance of people who would do such a thing really turns my stomach and breaks my heart, especially when they're rescues all over the country. So sad. There needs to be laws to protect rabbits.
