Bungeeing for Bunnies

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

baker.jpgHow far would you go to help pet rabbits? The UK’s Andy Baker asked himself that question. His answer: 1000 feet straight down from the world’s highest suspension bridge, the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado, using only a bungee cord.

His free fall jump will result in speeds up to 90 mph. But Baker is willing to take this plunge in order to help raise money for the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund in the UK and the Colorado House Rabbit Society in the US.

The jump will occur as part of the Go Fast! Games on September 26.

You can support Baker using the following links:

Giant Rabbit Finally Finds Home

Friday, August 15th, 2008

After eating two sets of owners out of house and home, Roo, a European giant rabbit, was sent back to a pet shop in Scotland.

According to Tracy Simpson, a staff member, “Her new owners thought they were buying an animal similar to a cat who would come and sit on their lap and quietly move around the house. But Roo isn’t like that. She’s full of life and because her teeth never stop growing, she likes to munch on things. That didn’t go down well.”

Fortunately, Roo has found a suitable home with one of the staff from the pet shop who is happy to accommodate Roo’s personality and habits.
