Bunnies for Easter? Maybe not

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – With Easter right around the corner, you might be thinking about gifting a bunny or baby chick for Easter.

The Bowling Green – Warren County Humane Society said to News 40 that if you’re thinking about adopting a critter to make an Easter present, you should make sure you do your research. “Whether it be a rabbit, chick, guinea pig; make sure you do your homework because these animals require a lot of maintenance, cleaning up after and etc.” said Brandon Taylor, the adoption center manager.

Taylor told News 40 that when they get rabbits in the shelter, they have to clean their kennels twice a day, and throughout the day scoop up pellets. Taylor and the rest of the humane society advocate for making sure the animal can be maintained before making a hasty decision. He also said if it’s a little too much to handle, surrender it safely rather than release it outside. Taylor also said to make sure if you plan on keeping your bunny long-term to get it spayed or neutered.
