Bright Bunny Faces Amid Animal Abuse Sentences

This has been a week of news stories about sentencing for animal abuse. First, a rabbit farm operator in Colorado, then a hoarding case in the UK and now news out of Canada. The latest story from Ontario, Canada concerns a man who has been charged with nine counts under the Ontario SPCA Act, and may get jail time, a lifetime ban from owning animals and big fines after the SPCA rescued “many, many” rabbits from his property . The rabbits were reported to be without food or water and suffering from neglect. The good news is when I read these stories, the rabbits who survive are safe from further suffering. There are always people who care and just take a look at the two bunny faces (above) from the bunch rescued in Ontario. (Photo credit: Northern Life CA)
