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 would not feel bad about butchering that adult rabbit at all now, anyone who gets salty about keeping rabbits for meat just remember this is what happens in nature.

    Had something kind of similar happen where two horses were playing and one playfully kicked at the other (this is normal behavior) and happened to kick the other right in the head. The horse didn’t die instantly but she was neurologically damaged and couldn’t stand up anymore let alone walk. Had to be euthanized.

    Sometimes I feel as though animals can be cruel just to be cruel, animals can be well aware of the severity of their acts. You should have killed that cruel rabbit, especially due to the fact that it might do it again seeing as how it crippled this poor baby for no reason at all.

    I don’t agree in the description where you say a wire bottom cage is healthier. Yes you prevent urine scald by letting waste drop through, but would you be comfortable standing on metal wire with your bare feet 24/7? Rabbits feet are made for the soft earth.

    Dunno why some snowflakes think that animals think like humans and should be punished? This happens all the time in the wild , animals are just dumb and are guided by their instincts , you must be stupid to think that way.

      I was sparring with my taekwondo girlfriend last week and she kicked me in the back and something similar happened as I fell onto the ground and couldn't feel my legs. It was very painful so I was going to tell my girl to stop, but she already kicked my nose.
