SINGAPORE - Abandoned rabbits have been found along Bukit Batok Road, not once, but on three occasions.
This case was first reported in citizen journalism website, Stomp.
A Stomp contributer, Lynn, who wrote in to highlight the case, believes the culprits could be the same person or group of people behind this act of animal abandonment.
Lynn added that five rabbits were found in a small pet carrier on June 14. One of the animals escaped and caught the attention of a family hiking along Bukit Batok Road, between West Ave 2 and 3.
The other four rabbits were found in the carrier.
The rabbits, which are estimated to be between 1 and 2 years old, showed signs of abandonment and abuse, and they were taken into the care of volunteers from Bunny Wonderland.
They were given medical attention and put up for adoption.
A second case of abandonment was reported to the SPCA on Jul 15, when a pink pet carrier was found dumped in the same area. Unfortunately, SPCA personnel found a dead rabbit, which was apparently mowed down by a vehicle.
The next day on Jul 16, SPCA posted about sighting yet another rabbit in the same area. Volunteers from Bunny Wonderland went to search and rescused a rabbit near a lamp post
The Stomp contributor added that the rabbits were purebred Holland Lop rabbits, and suspected that they may be bred by illegal breeders who did not care for the animals adequately.
