According to the Humane Society, rabbits are the third most abandoned pet, after cats and dogs, because 80% of bunnies purchased as Easter presents.
Based on these statistics it may be better to stick to jelly beans, Peeps, and other Easter goodies that aren’t pets that require a lifetime of care.
But if you do decide to go with the live Easter bunny, do your research first so you know how to care for it because they are seen as exotic animals to vets and they can cost more medically than cats and dogs.
A Reddit user Poochyena shared the image of a pet store in Canada that has refused to sell any bunnies until after Easter because of the large number who become abandoned.
