According to this article there has been a record number of dumped and unwanted pet rabbits this Spring. That’s according to the Blue Cross which last week warned people not to buy their children rabbits for Easter. They have also called upon on rabbit owners to have their pets neutered to stop them producing unwanted litters. It seems owners often get the sex of rabbits wrong and end up with unexpected litters. This coupled with the fact that many people are finding it hard to make ends meet and taking pets into rescue centres has led to a 69% increase in the numbers of unwanted rabbits. I’m not really sure why someone would buy a pet rabbit for Easter, surely taking on a pet requires a little more thought. I think chocolate rabbits are a much more appropriate gift.
