Big Rabbit Rescue from Qld Research Facility

The Rabbit Sanctuary has rescued 7 New Zealand Giant Rabbits from a research facility in Queensland. They were very lucky bunnies as normally rabbits are put down after their use for research.

Remember to Google Plus this article to help us rehome them. The g+ icon is a red one below the article.

In this case the researcher grew to love them and planned to ask if he could Rehome them at the end. When the research was finished he went for a ride on his motorbike to relax and was tragically killed by a hit and run driver. 

His research partner requested that the research facility grant them a pardon and they were allowed to live. Here are photos of them on arrival at The Rabbit Sanctuary.

This was the first time in their entire lives that they were not in a laboratory cage.

Just delivered by the pet taxi with excited visitors to The Rabbit Sanctuary watching the moment that these rabbits see a life of freedom outside a laboratory cage.
