Is there a 'collector' near you?
Ive dealt with two cases and think that it poses one of the most significant problems facing rabbits today. The danger lies in the public persona of the individuals involved and the denial of the evidence that would be blatantly obvious to some.
They say the road to h*ll is paved with good intentions.... many 'collectors' start out with good intentions but the situation then becomes overwhelming emotionally, financially and mentally but the urge to continue to collect remains.
Should collectors be given tea and sympathy? No. That wont stop them from collecting. As they are so far in denial I can see no benefit from 'giving them the facts'. Prosecution seems to me to be the only action to stop these individuals from causing more suffering, neglect and death.
Roll on the Animal Welfare Bill which will give the RSPCA legal recourse to prosecute.
