    Default poor little new arrival at Barc (Warning , may be upsetting )







    This little boy arrived with us last night


    Shouldn't have really taken him as trying to reduce numbers but how could I not .
    So here is his story as I know ..
    He was seen at livestock market in Holmfirth by someone . He was being sold for a pound . So the person ( who had done this before several times ) paid 2 for him and took him home .
    She cleaned his wounds and fed him .
    The downside is that this person , although good intentioned , had no where suitable for him . ( or several others from the same place) so they were housed in tiny cages .
    Now because of this the Rspca had a call about this person , who by trying to do good had got herself in a pickle . And the rspca took him and several other buns away .
    Liz ( rspca) took this little boy to the vets . He is very underweight and his back is a mass of scabby bite wounds . Thankfully they all look clean except one tiny wound that has a bit of pus . He is now on treatment and should make a good recovery .
    When Liz told me about him I couldn't help but take him .
    He is such a sweet little soul .
    There is a moral to this story though ... I see so many people taking buns from free ads , markets , et shop adverts etc. then not being able to give them what they need .
    While the intentions are good if you can't proved properly for them the stay away from these places and don't get yourselves into bother .
    This little mite has come good . He will get what he needs now .
    But how many bunnies don't . Good intentions aren't enough

    Firstly, hello Angie. Oh how you are missed on RU


    As for the poor wee Bunny, well what can I say. This time someone (you) was able to step in to help. But as you say, how many other Rabbits are not so lucky.
    I know that if someone sees a Rabbit in a bad way it is impossible to walk away. But taking the Rabbit means that the person has to be in a position to keep him/her and provide him/her with all the care needed. As you say, good intentions can go horribly wrong when heart over-rules head.

    I hope Bunny makes a rapid recovery. Have you named him yet ?

    Gracious, what a state he's in

    I'm so glad he's found you.

    It's really difficult when seeing a bunny in that situation, you want to rescue but can't sustain it. I hope there will be more rescuers and less of the cruel people who allow this to happen. I rescue and foster as many as I can, on top of my own rabbits, but boundaries have to be set where clean and spacious accommodation and vet's bills are priority.

    Bless and you and him

    Hoping he gets a fantastic home once he is fully recovered.

    Good to see you, even if it is in these circumstances. He is gorgeous poor thing, he's got such a friendly face. I am glad he's safe now. Hope he finds a new home soon. I keep working on my mum to get more rabbits but it's not worked (so far, but I'll keep trying )

    Oh my goodness, the state of his back! Just tragic and then I saw his adorable little face.
    So glad that you are taking care of him now, but it must be so frustrating for you.
