Nature can be cruel - adult rabbit attacks baby bunny

  • Published on Apr 16, 2016
  • In an attempt to allow our rabbits to enjoy a dry, reasonably warm day out in our yard and to give them a chance to get some exercise and to socialize, we let them out in their protective pens, separating the adult males from each other and from the females and their litters. One adult female with an older litter of her own decided she did not like her sister's younger litter being in the same pen. She aggressively went after a few of the 3-week-old babies and finally succeeded in biting and crippling one unfortunate baby.
    Very shortly after, we came across a viral video where a similar thing happened to a baby bunny named Wheelz whose owners found crippled but alive and built him a little wheelchair out of dollar-store materials. This was a very moving gesture and was heartwarming in the hope it inspired. Unfortunately, their bunny ultimately passed away too from his injuries.
    The saddest part of the whole thing was some people's reactions to their video. They blamed Overlook Acres (Wheelz' owners) for what happened and accused them of cruelty and neglect for allowing their rabbits to freerange and 'suffer' outdoors.
    They ignored the explanation that an adult rabbit caused Wheelz' injuries and questioned their character and motivations for keeping rabbits and for trying to keep Wheelz' memory alive.
    I thought for a long time about whether or not to publish this video (as I simply wanted to forget this ugly incident), but felt it should be shared in defense of what the good people at Overlook Acres had said all along. An adult rabbit attacked and crippled their baby bunny through no fault of their own.
    People criticize breeders if they keep their rabbits in cages with wire floors (no matter the thickness of the gauge or the fact that it's ultimately healthier and cleaner for them), yet in trying to do better and offering them the ability to freerange... this too is treated by some as being criminal and neglectful.
    Not so and not fair.
    So in defense of Overlook Acres, I'm showing this video.

    I had a male rabbit that did this to one of my does. Obviously the buck went off to freezer camp. I thought it was a one off thing, I had no idea rabbits intentionally did this until seeing this video. I guess some rabbits are just dicks?!? Soooo weird....I understand them being aggressive but paralyzing another rabbit? You think they’d just bully them a little until they stayed away, not go so hard core mean so fast:(

      Oh & just a little side note: I saw comments where people said don’t mix ages & that’s not necessarily true. It’s more about how often they’re around each other. Look in to colony raising & you’ll get an idea of the dynamics at play. It’s totally possible to mix adults & babies.....there’s just a lot of conditions to meet for it to work out. I have a few males, a few more females than males, & their babies living together & have never had a baby injured bc of an aggressive adult. It’s really just about dynamics.

    I once had a donkey in among my cattle to protect them from wild dogs and coyote. But after a while I started finding dead calves in the pasture with large bites to their necks, then one day I actually caught the donkey in the act. That friggin donkey never saw another sunrise.

    Ok in sorry but some of yall are just too fucking stupid. One comment was im going to take a 12 gauge and kill the rabbit that did that. That person sounds so fucking stupid. Its nature things like this happen you can tell it was accidental aswell. If you can't handle it then your not fit to survive.

    Pretty sure this was cause it's pen was too small. The rabbits are territorial and they feel too claustrophobic in a small pen like that with so many other rabbits to share it with. Glad you guys are taking precautions to prevent this now.

      Fernando Villegas Nature is amoral. For non empathic social species, the survival and success of _heir own_ young is paramount.
      Everything else is secondary.
      When a lion becomes the alpha of a pride, it will attempt to seek out and kill every cub that is not its own, for instance.

    Yep. Can confirm. Rabbits can be unexpectedly vicious towards their own. We had a mother literally bury one of her babies alive, bite another when we were gone, and would randomly attack the father.
    She turned rather violent after having babies and started biting and attacking our hands and what babies were live. She ended up literal snake food and we hand fed the babies. She just was not worth keeping around. Strangest thing I tell you.

      Nope... sound bad but she was specifically fed to a friend's python. I mean we could have easily released her, my mom's idea, but hawks and coyotes would have gotten to her anyways. She was just a vicious rabbit that sat separated from all the other because she was just so damn mean after giving birth.

      How it did it without drawing blood is a mystery, though...
