Hoppy Weekend from my buddy Bunjamin Franklin

My fiance is part-Pacific Islander, and he never ceases to amaze me-- above and beyond wabbitsnkeets in supporting me through the tides of life. But he doesn't hop on the bed whenever I am home and demand attention like Bunjamin Franklin does-- first thing in the morning and as soon as I put my feet … Continue reading Hoppy Weekend from my buddy Bunjamin Franklin

Help Ban Animal Abuse Posts on Instagram: Sign & Share Petition

These have been eventful weeks! As urgency on #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies diminished, I happily returned to my neglected Instagram bunny account. But the Instagram rabbit community was in the midst of further uproar: a man in Iran had created an Instagram account and posted videos and taunting photos of the torturing of defenseless rabbits to death. Despite … Continue reading Help Ban Animal Abuse Posts on Instagram: Sign & Share Petition

Twitter’s African Grey Otto (@keelingrob)

Whimsy, comic relief -- we thank our lucky stars for ice-breaking, delight-waking humor. Especially on those dark days. Otto announced plans for #birddominion some weeks ago. The initial story was covered in detail at BirbObserver.blog/the-round-up (Feb 15 ed.). Our bird accounts on Twitter and Instagram are both @Budgiebouquet. Our flock of five has enlisted in … Continue reading Twitter’s African Grey Otto (@keelingrob)

#CrowdSourcing #Activism: #Bunniesmatterinvegastoo

Last night, it finally clicked: Instagram accounts involved in the post-poisoning evacuation of abandoned pet rabbits from Nevada state property were replicating the Facebook hashtag #bunniesmatterinvegastoo on belated Instagram posts. If those users tweet, however, they haven't learned the Twitter hashtag #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies (they don't grace my Twitter radar). Activism in #bunniesmatterinvegastoo has had four apparent … Continue reading #CrowdSourcing #Activism: #Bunniesmatterinvegastoo

The petition on chang.org opened, to my knowledge, in the wee hours yesterday morning. It had just over 550 signatures when I first saw it; this morning it has nearly 5,000.

I am grateful to … Continue reading #LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies Update: Mid-Atlantic

#LasVegasDumpsiteBunnies

Latest update from Dave Schweiger's FaceBook page is 72 rabbits have been rescued from the State's hospital site. More are apparently undergoing rescue as I write. I copy Dave's video of five of the rescued rabbits. The gofundme account for the consortium of associated rescues is apparently now the place to contribute: gofundme.com/bunnies-matterHttps://gofundme.com/bunnies-matter

CALL #Nevada TO ACCOUNT FOR THESE RABBBITS NOW!

UPDATE & CORRECTION: City officials clarified that this state children's mental hospital site is outside their jurisdiction. It was, in fact, the State agency responsible for the institution that had threatened their extermination earlier.Β  Somebody appears to have succeeded in poisoning at least 30 rabbits at the site. I know of no toxicology reports: News … Continue reading CALL #Nevada TO ACCOUNT FOR THESE RABBBITS NOW!
