Our Rescue Work

By Francine Low

The Three Musketeers (Huishan, Jacelyn and I) set off to a park on 21 December 2008 in response to emails from the public where sightings of rabbits were seen hopping and munching grass near the restaurant located in the park itself. It was a Sunday afternoon and we were blessed with good weather.

The minute we sank our feet in the park, we set off to ‘’work’’ working out where our ‘strategic’ locations would be. Believe me, it really was a tough nut to crack as the park was a huge place and the rabbit/rabbits sightings were all over. We laid out food baits in strategic places to invite the rabbit/rabbits. We waited -chatted-waited-chatted-chasing away insects from 15:30 till 17:00. No rabbit/rabbits were in sight.

Deep down, no one was ready to call it a day so we reached a consensus that we’ll go over to the side where the restaurant was. Upon reaching there, (we were in synchronize) we said aloud, not possible to be here as there are no bushes for hiding but just one big open space. As soon we spoke, a tan, super cute bunny was a few feet in front of us. We dropped everything and went into action offering food and to our pleasant surprise, the bunny readily accepted.

Then soon after, another rabbit appeared [they were hiding under the restaurant, there was a gap]. We managed to get hold of the second rabbit (who is a female) pretty easily. The tan rabbit, a male, was incredible alert and super fast that it took us 30 minutes to finally have him safe and sound in our care.

Both were extremely dehydrated but lucky in reasonably good shape considering poor nutrients, under the mercy of the weather with no water.

It was no joke trying to ‘’catch’’ a rabbit when the elements were not in our favor.

Note from HRSS:

"Setting your rabbits loose in the wild does not make them "free", it makes them "food". Please do not abandon your rabbit as it is a very cruel act. You are subjected the poor animal to elements of the weather and mercy of other animals. Please be responsible for your pet. It you need to give up your pet, please try to find another home for it.

Rabbit abandonment is a crime punishable by law. Any offenders found guilty can be jailed up to 12 months and/or fined up to $10,000. Everyone has a part to play in preventing pet abandonment. If you see such an act being carried out, report the case to either AVA @ 1800-476 1600 or SPCA at 6287 5355."
