Make Mine Chocolate

As usual, the House Rabbit Society has some great information in their 2006 "Make Mine Chocolate" campaign which aims to prevent the tradition of buying live bunnies for Easter gifts. Just a few tidbits:

**Rabbits live up to 7-10 years. Chances are, your kid's interest in them will be over in about 7-10 days, tops.

**Rabbits hit sexual maturity at about 3 1/2 mths for boys, 4-5mths for girls. That means, if your bunny lives that long, you can look forward to some lovely spraying or other unpleasantness by mid-summer, unless you plan on getting your bunny spayed or neutered.

**Releasing a domesticated rabbit into the wild is a certain death sentence. Contrary to popular belief, they don't learn to adapt and go on to star in their own little Watership Down world. They just become prey, most of them within a day.

Just...don't do it. Okay?
