Found this in today's Telegraph:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/5810268/Rabbit-whose-food-bill-tops-a-50-a-week.html

Apparently he eats "9 pounds worth of fruit, vegetables, rabbit food, biscuits and treats a day" (no mention of hay) and "enjoys eating broccoli, but his favourite treats are fig rolls".

As I am not a member of Facebook I can't read what is written there about this rabbit. Maybe someone else could check it out.

just read the article and I say :roll: to her. What a lousy way to raise money for a rabbit sanctuary - by promoting poor diet!

Poor bun

Edited to say - I just checked the sanctuary named in the article and next to every bun they have things like 'suitable for children over 6'... They also rehome singly...

RU rehomers are the best!

Unfortunately many breeders of giant rabbits feed biscuits to their rabbits...primarily because they're concerned about size for the show table, rather than promoting longevity of life :(

Has anyone suggested she join this site? Maybe it might help educate her, but it could be put to her in a way that it would benefit her and her buns to join here.
