Rabbits should be free!

Theres nothing that annoys me more than people who dont let their rabbits out of their cages ! they should be able to run free through your garden! experiencing smells and nibbling grass at will!

If you want to safely have your rabbit as a free range pet, you should have it as a house rabbit. Rabbits can be litterbox trained and your house can be rabbit proofed. But predators can't be taught not to come into your yard and kill your rabbit. And you can't control the weather. Your pet rabbit is not a wild animal equipped to live freely outside (although, I don't approve of them being in outdoor hutches either, or small indoor cages). While it's true that most people don't give their pet rabbits enough room, giving them the run of the yard just isn't the answer.

That's what i did when I had my rabbit. We rabbit proofed my bedroom and it was litter boxed trained so it had run of the place. Then we would take it out in the yard a few times a week for fresh air, exercise, and time stretch in more then just a bedroom sized spot.

I agree with you 100% on this one. When I had my rabbit I would take him in the back yard and let him run around. I would do this about 3 or 4 times a week so he could get exercise, nibble the grass, and give his legs a good stretch too! PurpleTeddyBear.

I agree with you! I have a rabbit. It is very clever and never relieve itself except it is sick. My family usually make it out of the hutch. It usually jumps on the sofa and watching TV with me. Many people are suprise about that it is not in the hutch. They ofter think that rabbits are stupid and must be in the hutch. But mine is not.

Our bunny, Benny, has a two story hutch. It's big enough for him to run and play with his toys. But when we're both home from work he stays out with us all evening in the family room and plays with his sister, our dog Sky. Bunnies need room to run and play. They also need company. What really ticks me off is when people get a bunny, stick it in a cage outside and never go near it except to feed and water it. That's beyond wrong! Rabbits are social creatures and deserve love and need to be part of a family.

I agree with you to let rabbits be free.In my childhood,I had a pet rabbit.I hoped it could be raised freely.I often took it to my bedroom as my family member,sometimes I could see its smile.Do you ever see a rabbit's smile,the beautiful lovly simle.It jumped up and down my sofa.I think it is a happier rabbit more than the rabbit is in the cage.

I'm agree with you!But sometimes we must know that the owner of the rabbit(as a pet) like to see tha rabbit character in the cages than outside the cage! I'm also dont know why! I just can suggest if someone here to have a rabbit to be a pet,they must creat a large cage s for a rabbit play freely and comfortable!
