You wouldn’t buy a reindeer for your child at Christmas so why would you buy a rabbit for your child at Easter ?

• Rabbits are not “low-maintenance” pets — they need as much care and attention as dogs and cats. • Most children lose interest in a live bunny after only a few weeks. • Rabbits need regular veterinary care by a vet with additional training in exotics. • Rabbits have an average lifespan of 8-14 years. • Rabbits must have an adult as their primary caregiver. • Rabbits are the THIRD MOST frequently surrendered animal at shelters, and the THIRD MOST euthanized. • According to an ASPCA study, rabbits are more expensive to own than cats or guinea pigs — coming just after dogs in expense. This Easter don’t buy or adopt a rabbit on an impulse.

On the 3rd of April 1993, 25 years to this day, Tom Worby a 15 year old on his first day out sabbing in the United Kingdom was crushed beneath the wheels of the Cambridgeshire Foxhounds hound van.

The van had been driven at high speed towards sabs and Tom was unable to get out of the way in time. He was caught on the side of the van and dragged along, the driver huntsman Anthony Ball refused to stop and carried on at speed until Tom lost his grip and fell beneath the back wheel. Ball carried on at speed straight back to the kennels where he was protected by police. The hunt and support present laughed and declared it a victory while Tom died in his girlfriends arms. Anthony Ball was never prosecuted. Wherever you are in the world please put Tom Worby in your thoughts today. RIP Tom, never forgotten – Cambridgeshire Foxhounds never forgiven.
