sadly, bunnies do not fair well at animal shelters. the environment is just not conducive to their gentle dispositions. people still do not understand that buns can be indoor pets. outside they are much more prone to getting killed by wildlife.
on another note. when people asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up, as a child, i would say “a bunny”. not the easter bunny, nothing regal like that – just a bunny.
