“Setting a pet free”

DSCN0967Facebook had a picture of a pet bunny in a park in NY, someone had set it free.

“When are people going to learn……you cannot dump a pet bunny in the woods and expect it to join the wild bunnies and dance in the moonlight……this is not Velveteen Rabbit…….
You cannot set a pet bird “free” to fly in the sky……they will starve, become ill, or be eaten by prey.
Animals taught to be our pets depend on US to survive….you are not setting them free…..you are sending them to their deaths……. The same way a feral animal does not instantly adjust to the world of humans, a pet animal does not “adjust” to the ways of the wild.”

I have rescued two rabbits, a pomeranian dumped by the roadside, amazon book and one bird that were set free.   The bird was found by my daughter on her college campus; the bunnies were found in yards.

It is an easy way out, a coward’s way out……..drive the car to a secluded spot, open the door and toss out a dog, a cat, a bunny……  unfortunately, most times, that ride is a one way ticket to the Bridge…….

    I completely agree with you. People need to educate themselves before getting a pet in the first place, it’s truly ridiculous. I’m glad you rescued all those animals that were set “free.” If I saw one in the same situation I would rescue it also. I have 2 bunnies too by the way 🙂
