Please keep your distance!

Attention well meaning people wanting to check on and feed the feral rabbits in Richmond and elsewhere: PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE! The Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease virus was spread in Nanaimo by people approaching and feeding the feral rabbits and spreading it to other rabbits in the area. Being in the direct vicinity of loose rabbits is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS PRACTICE AT THIS TIME! The virus is spread on shoes, tires, clothing, etc.. The rabbits are enjoying their spring grass, it’s rich in protein and it’s sweet, they honestly don’t need to be fed anything else and they’re not going to be overly interested in treats, anyway. Please stay away from them! Thank you!
