Those ears 😱🐰
When the RSPCA received a report that numerous rabbits were not being properly cared for, the rescue dispatched a team of officers to investigate. When they arrived, they were astounded by what they saw.
In addition to being housed in confined, claustrophobic, and filthy surroundings, the 47 rabbits were Flemish giants, which meant that several of them were incredibly enormous. According to the RSPCA, the largest of the group weighed about 18 pounds and was about the size of a medium-sized dog, “such as a Jack Russell terrier or King Charles spaniel.”
The cages the rabbits were living in were far too small to accommodate them, and overall, they weren’t being treated with the respect they needed. They were all examined by a veterinarian after being saved to make sure their health was OK.
In a news statement, Trevor Walker, an inspector with the RSPCA, stated, “These poor bunnies were living in crowded and unsanitary conditions which would have been quite unpleasant for them, especially in the heat.” Fortunately, a veterinarian discovered that they are all healthy; one of them is taking medication for weepy eyes and a cut on the back of his neck.
The rabbits are all doing quite well under the RSPCA’s care, with the exception of a few minor difficulties. After they’ve had some time to settle in and decompress, they will all be offered for adoption.
Walker hoped that they would “find loving homes.” They have an excellent disposition, therefore they will make good companion animals.
Although some of the bunnies are larger than many people may anticipate, with the proper study and care, they’re likely to make excellent additions to a number of fortunate households. These adorable giants are in need of love and are eager to find their everlasting homes.
