Other clips showcased less elegant rounds where bunnies crouched down refusing to jump over the hurdles, ran around/away from the hurdles, or knocked the bars down with their noses.

Hen Babysits Litter of Bunnies

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Bunny mom with babysitter henAt Staglands Wildlife Reserve near Wellington, New Zealand, staff went to check for eggs under one of their silky bantam hens and instead found a litter of four baby bunnies.

The mother rabbit, who was out in the parklands, doesn’t mind the avian babysitter.

According to Jayson Davis, who discovered the babies, “The mother rabbit has no problem with it. They only feed once a day which is usually at night time but I have occasionally seen her in there with the chicken herself, and the babies. It doesn’t seem to be a lot of room in there but there’s never any bickering.”

Maryland Rabbit Hoarding

Friday, January 14th, 2011

This case really shows the importance of spaying/neutering your pet rabbit.  The owners of these rabbits said they started with what they thought were two female rabbits.  This wasn’t the case, and the rabbits kept breeding with each other. The final count was 78 when officials intervened.

If you live in the Baltimore area and would like to help, the House Rabbit Society of Baltimore, DC, and NoVA are looking for emergency foster homes for these bunnies. Email rabbitinfo@rabbitsinthehouse.org.

Rabbits Take Over Japanese Chemical Weapons Site

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

The tiny island of Okunoshima was once home to a major poisonous gas facility for the Imperial Army during World War II. The island, only 4 kilometers in circumference, had even been removed from Japanese maps for a period of time for security purposes. Once the war ended, the island was deserted. In 1971, a teacher from the nearby city of Takehara abandoned the school’s pet rabbits in Okunoshima. Now, the island is host 300 feral rabbits.

With 2011 being the Year of the Rabbit, many tourists are making their way to the little island to see the furry inhabitants.

Car-Eating Rabbits!

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010


Well, sort of. There aren’t any ferocious beasts of Monty Python caliber, but rabbits are being blamed for munched-on wires in the Denver Airport parking lot.

Dexter Meyer had parked his new Volkswagen Jetta in the airport parking lot while away on a nine day vacation. Upon his return, Meyer was greeted with blinking lights when he started his car. A trip to the dealership found that wires had been chewed through. The mechanic suggested a rabbit was the culprit because he had seen a few cars brought in from the airport with chewed wires.

The airport has a fence around the lot, but apparently the rabbits are too sneaky to be kept out by it. If those wild rabbits are anything like our two troublemakers wires are too tempting to not be chomped.

Wild Rabbit Movie: Rabbit Love

Friday, April 9th, 2010

Agnes de Weert from the Netherlands sent in this amazing movie of a wild rabbit family living in her backyard last year. In the video, you can see the rabbits building a nest and the mama bun nursing the babies. Unfortunately, it is apparent that the mama bun was very sick, but the babies did survive.

Watch it here:

Yesterday, Agnes spotted two wild rabbits in her backyard. Perhaps there will be a new bunny family?
