We rabbit owners tend to feel a bit of dread every Easter season. That's because many people, particularly parents, give rabbits as presents at Easter. Every year, thousands of rabbits are purchased by or given to people who don't think through the consequences of their decision.
One poster published every year by the House Rabbit Society is headed like this: "He's not a child's toy. He's a real, live, ten-year commitment."
Many Easter rabbits end up abandoned in the wild, defenseless and hopeless. Their final days are spent in confusion and terror, enduring harsh temperatures and bloodthirsty predators. All for the sake of putting a smile on a child's face for five minutes on Easter morning.
It's not worth the price.
So this Easter, don't buy a rabbit.
