Easter, Rabbits, and BunnyCam

Edit: There's also another site with information about this issue: Make Mine Chocolate.

So, Easter's coming up.

I, of all people, am not going to tell you that rabbits don't make good pets. They do. They're intelligent, cute, and fun to have around.

However.

There is always a problem this time of year of people who buy rabbits as pets as Easter gifts, then decide later they don't want them. Then they either give them to shelters, which are already under a strain, or release them into the wild, which is such a sucky thing to do that you're lucky I'm not allowed to use profanity here on DR.

So this Easter, don't suck. Think long and hard before you get any pet, think extra long and hard before you get a rabbit for Easter (and read up about their needs), and if you do decide to commit to a rabbit, get one from your local shelter, rather than a pet store.

No comments on this one, as we like to keep DR light-hearted at all times. So to cleanse the pallet, here is a bunny cam courtesy of Found Animals. If you'd like to read more about the issues with getting a rabbit for Easter, they have more info on their page.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled disapprovals.
