Ten Reasons to Not Dump Your BunnyIf you currently have a domestic rabbit that you no longer want or feel you can no longer care for and are considering releasing him into the wild , please, DON’T THROW HIM AWAY! Consider the following before you act:
- Rabbits are domesticated – that means they cannot survive if abandoned in the wild.
- Everything in the big bad world is a predator to the domestic rabbit – even a cat.
- Rabbits are totally defenseless against cars, dogs, wildlife and guns.
- The diet of a domestic rabbit is radically different than that of its cousin, the wild rabbit. The domestic rabbit would not know the right things to eat!
- The stress of being released into a large field would easily frighten the rabbit to death. You don’t ever want to hear a rabbit scream.
- The weather in the wild is not friendly to your pet rabbit.
- They have little to no wild instincts. They would not know where to go and hide.
- If the rabbit injured itself, it would be instant prey to a predator. Where would the rabbit get help?
- There are ticks and other nasty parasites in the wild. Your rabbit has no defense against the viruses left by an insect bite.
- Just because rabbits are silent does not mean they are “dumb”. They are very intelligent, know you and need you.
