It's just wonderful to see people coming together for these bunnies! glad they have been given a 2nd chance. Humans need to grasp that animals breed to no fix your bunnies.

I am glad they were sterilized and moved to the safety of a santuary. Poor little guys!!

People should be more responsible!!!

We had a problem where i live with rabbits on a university property. The students liked feeding them. You could sit on the grass and some would come up to you. They were talking of killing them until public outcry stopped the cull. People came forward, caught the rabbits, vets donated their time to sterilize them and then they were re-located to a sanctuary.

The problem is people buy little cute baby rabbits for their kids at Easter. Then as the rabbit gets bigger they are no longer so cute. The kids become bored, parents are tired of looking after the rabbit and/or wonder why they can't get their child to clean the cage and look after their pet by themselves.

If parents buy pets for their younger children and expect them to look after the pet 100% they are expecting too much of young kids. My daughter had hamsters when little but it was i that cleaned the cage.

Bunnies and baby chicks needs to be banned, made illegal to sell in pet stores. After Easter out SPCA is filled to the max with unwanted rabbits. It is so sad. And others are illegally thrown into the wild. Pet rabbits do not take well to the conditions of living outdoors as wild rabbits do.

Help get rabbits and chicks banned from selling in pet stores where you live. Talk to your SPCA on how to help.

That's the fault of human beings! Glad they've been rescued. They are only doing what comes naturally!

Neutered ferals still cause damage and people viewing animals as consumer products ensure a steady supply of new ones.
It doesn't matter whether its rabbits, dogs, cats or whatever - ferals are a serious threat to the environment and should be treated as such instead of being supported at the cost of local wildlife.
