Do you think those are the rabbits in the picture? They're so darn adorable! It is completely beyond me how anyone could even begin to think of doing something like that, let alone actually go through with it.

Yes, the bunnies in the pictures are the same ones. Makes you wonder about the parents though, presumably these guys are the same litter? Unless a couple of them are the parents, I don't know...

I couldn't even read the story as anything to do with animals or children getting hurt by others gets me beyond peeved! Some human beings are just a total waste of skin....

God, it's bad enough to release domesticated rabbits outside, but to DROWN them?? Releasing them may be a virtual death sentence, but they'd at least have a slim chance of being spotted/rescued and even if they didn't, drowning is one of the worst, suffering-filled ways to die!

Seriously, why get rabbits in the first place if you care so little about them? And why not just dump them off at a rescue?? People are horrible, especially ones that actually *enjoy* torturing/killing animals (which that guy probably does - if all he wanted was to be rid of the bunnies, then why be pissed off at someone for taking them from him).

It's so nice to see the other side of humanity, though - a woman who was attentive enough to pick up on somewhat subtle clues that something very wrong was going down and who disregarded her own safety to snatch the sack of bunnies away from a man prepared to murder them (though I imagine if he'd tried to hurt her, her dog would've rushed to her defense, which may have been why all he did was swear and storm off). Dog or not, it was still a big risk and she didn't hesitate to take it in order to save innocent lives.

Ya I'm so glad she was there... It makes me so sad to see those poor buns

I would never ever do what the guy was doing. I would find a home for my bunnies or put them at the rabbit sanctuary in my area if I could not keep them. The bunnies in the photo are adorable, I bet that they are very grateful to her for saving their lives.

Some people are morons. You can't cure stupid. However, you can reduce the damage stupid people do, if you get the chance.

This is probably not as bad as the ceaseless hell that rabbits that are raised for meat must endure. It is also horribly cruel, when people who can no longer care for their rabbits give them to breeders and meat farmers. Nothing is more sad than to see a pair of domestic pet rabbits living in constant terror trying to comfort and protect themselves while they await their horrible fate. Rabbits know when they are going to be killed because they can hear the cries and smell the blood of other rabbits. I hate breeders and rabbit meat farmers. Unfortunately, these cretins operate in suburban neighborhoods where they draw rough and sometimes dangerous people into the neighborhood. If you see rabbits kept in hutches and they are often without food or water, and left out on the coldest and hottest days, and you see boxes and tools of slaughter, you know they are being kept for food. You can however call the local humane society if there is one, and report these cretins for animal cruelty. Many breeders are not licensed and are not paying taxes on their blood money. Report these bastards.
