View Full Version : A sad story of abuse . .

This is Mozart . .

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b288/SallyCI/SafeRedirect.jpg

He was brought into Briar Patch Rescue last week by his owner. Both she and the rabbit were being abused by her husband and she wanted to get the rabbit out before he got really hurt :( (Let's hope she does the same for herself :cry: )
Unfortunately for Mozart it was already too late - x-rays revealed TWO breaks to his femur that probably resulted from being kicked :evil:
He has been operated on and the leg has been pinned, but only time will tell if it will hold. If not he may end up with an amputation :(

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b288/SallyCI/SafeRedirect-1.jpg

Mozart's treatment could easily run into hundreds of pounds . . and that's even before neutering and vaccinations can be done in preparation for rehoming. This will obviously put a huge dent in the finances of Briar Patch, who are run entirely on donations.
If you would like to sponser Mozart during his recouperation (or any of the other Briar Patch Bunnies!) or you would like to give a donation you can do so by following the Paypal link on the website;
http://www.briarpatchrescue.org.uk/help.php
. . cheques also welcome of course :D
We are also working on fund raising ideas so keep your eyes peeled for those in the near future . . :D

Yes. But to bring a prosecution you'd have to *proove* that it was the partner that inflicted the injuries. Sadly I doubt that would happen as it'd be her word against his
If she has reported *her* injuries to the Police (which often never happens) that *might* add so weight to a report to the RSPCA. But I still doubt a prosecution would go ahead

What a sad story. It makes me so sad to hear of all the cruelty to animals. I would love to help out. My sister and I make dolls that look and feel like real babies. We do these and raffle them for charity. They take a long time to make so it would be about January until it was ready. Here are pics of similar dolls.

Donations no matter how big or small or all extremely valued :D Thankyou for all the very kind donations so far.
Stanley's Mom - that's a very generous offer! Money is ALWAYS needed and I expect Mozart will be recovering for some time, so anything you could donate at any point in the future would be really appreciated :D

Not sure about linkin to ebay auctions - I think you'd have to check ebay's rules.
But thanks again for all the offers.

This story made me feel quite sick when I read it - sick of humans :evil: :censored: Poor, poor little man ,I do hope he recovers and is not traumatised for the rest of his life by his experience. I will have a look to see what I can sell on Ebay ( got a couple of things I don't need ) and will give the proceeds of the sale to you.

I still feel so guilty:cry: :cry: :cry: Leon looked at me before he died in my arms, and I could almost hear him say "What have you done, Mum?":cry: :cry: :cry:
