Spring brings daffodils, croaking frogs, and everything bunny. Chocolate bunnies, stuffed bunnies, Easter baskets, and pet shops offering live bunnies to thrill children on Easter morning. Well-meaning parents buy them without much thought to the commitment of caring for them and they are frequently dumped in a public park or grassy area doomed to fend for themselves.
May the Easter season bring a new awareness of the reality of live bunnies. They are adorable, fluffy animals who deserve much more than a life in a cage tended by humans who know nothing about their needs. Children would be just as happy with a stuffed animal or even a chocolate one.
