I was encouraged to see this article in the London 'Metro' a few days ago :D

Any good publicity for looking after our rabbits better is fantastic!

(Even though us die hards on RU know all this, loads of people still don't!)

Excellent article, and that photo really drives the message home doesn't it, poor bunny. Hopefully it will prevent more bunnies suffering the same fate :thumb:

Yes the photo is awful, but of course as you say, makes it clear that it's not a matter to ignore :)

It's okay. A reply to their comment should help with that :)

Yes, green bottle and blue bottle flies ... (Blowflies)

I scared myself by researching ........

One Bluebottle can lay up to 600 eggs, which in warm weather will hatch in under 48 hours and produce maggots which can become fully developed in a week.
