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.

    In my opinion it's a bit risky putting another animals offspring with another mother. Since stuff like this can happen. Rabbits have the same instinct as any other animal, if there's an intruder on their turf, they will attack, if they feel that a baby bunny is ill or a handicap, they will kill it. Nature is cruel indeed but they do this as sort of a... control on population. She also could have been confused with the new addition simply because it wasn't her baby. There's alot of factors to why it would attack them.
    Then you have other stories, like for example, I put a litter of puppies in another mother's puppy box who was also nursing (one of my many experiments, jk). I wasn't sure if she was going to allow the puppies to be with her puppies. She did more than just accept their presence, she also started feeding them, cleaning them, and watching over them. An amazing experience for me to witness tbh. So honestly, it can go both ways, but dogs/cats are more domesticated than rabbits/birds/reptiles; that's another thing to factor. ANYWAYS, enough of my rambling, I'll be on my way now. >.

      I've had two pet rabbits and they were both spiteful creatures that wanted nothing more than to inflict pain on others. The latter would not even allow you to touch her. When Christmas rolled around she chewed the wrapping paper off the presents and peed on them before chewing through the wires for the lights.

    Rabbits are not vicious and violent generally speaking, not how people comments are saying.
    Rabbits are animals just like us and just because they may look cute doesn't mean they act "cute" all of the time. They are just as serious about life as any other animal.
    They do get stressed and possible violent in crowded caged conditions. It's not natural for them to live in such environments.
    Rabbits do have many interesting qualities. In the wild they are actually monogamous and pair for life and have complicated social structures. Florida Marsh Rabbits are actually partially aquatic and swim on a daily basis.
    Rabbits take good care of their young in natural conditions but it's not unusual to see unnatural behaviors in unnatural conditions in unnatural, domesticated animals.

    I had same exact type of bunnies but mine didn't attack the lil ones like that ... I put lil ones alone in a cage and from time to time I let their mother in the cage to feed them but I never let the male adult with them but when outside they all out together but sometimes I notice their mom kinda aware of the male like really cautious of him even tho he is their father but he is soo crazy sometimes just like the one in this video ... but still I never tho the male COULD DO THIS lol

    There are a lot of misconceptions about rabbits and bunnies. Anyone who is familiar with them knows they are not soft fluffy cute little things. They bite, scratch and attack. It is an inherent trait that they have. They are very territorial and will attack and maim or kill each other or go after the young ones as seen in this video. Having them together like this is just a bad thing waiting to happen. Sooner rather than later. Sad facts but true.

  • Akiko Warrior Cats

    Poor baby :( of your knowledge, was the kit ill? Or had a defect? Sometimes animals kill their babies if they are ill or defected, so they don’t suffer later in life. But this bunny, most likely, did not father the kit, so probably has issues with young ones. The big one was not ill, if they were, they wouldn’t be around others if he was, so it may just be, the cruel way of nature sadly. Where did you get the big rabbit? Did you breed him or buy him? If you bought him, you should not buy from them again, just for the other rabbits’ safety. Sorry about the little guy.
