Found: Highland Park backyard bunny

Submitted by T. Nichols

For the last few days, in our front yard, a really tame rabbit had been hanging out and alternately being chased by the neighbor kids.  Today he showed up in the backyard of our Highland Park house, which is fenced off so he obviously had to do a little work to get back there and away from the children. I fear, because he seems so tame and isn’t scared of me, that he might be a lost pet.  He seems to be perfectly happy in our backyard for now, though we do have dogs, and I made sure they left him alone when they went out to pee. He didn’t seem scared of them either, frankly.  Contact: toban@att.net

  1. That’s definitely a pet rabbit.
    The LA Rabbit Foundation does a great job with finding homes for rabbits: http://www.larabbits.org/
    If you find a stray rabbit, they recommend: “Please contact us at losangelesrabbits@earthlink.net or call 310-713-2478″

    For care of rabbits (what they can and can’t eat, etc), The House Rabbit Society is the best:

    Domestic bunnies aren’t built for the outdoors! They’re very susceptible to fleas, mites, disease, and potentially fatal stomach issues from curious eating. Not to mention, of course, coyotes, dogs, and more. Please get that cutie indoors!
