My 10 year old rabbit 'Nielsen 2' sitting in his cage.

To all those folks who think this is looking like imprisoning animals: Nielsen 2 lives very comfortable in his cage, being feeded and cleaned by the children every day and protected from his main enemies - dogs, cats, buzzards and hawks. He even survived a flood disaster as the cage was 5 ft high and the water stood 'only' 3 ft high in the garden.

In free nature 95% of all rabbits die before they reach their 2nd year of life. They´ve got only one mighty weapon: Their reproductiveness.

Well, if I was a rabbit I would have
preferred to live wild 2 years and then
be cooked with tomato and olives,or
eaten by a fox,
than to stay 10 years imprisoned.....

It's just my opinion,though....

mattepiu, thank you for your comment, it is appreciated. From the human point of view, you are perfectly right. Being eaten by a fox is a natural death for a rabbit and better than being imprisoned.

In our (agricultural) region, every day thousands of rabbits die in free nature from unnatural deaths. They lie on the roads, flat like a stamp, overrolled by truck tires. They lie in the corn fields, impoisoned by fertilizers or they are (more or less) living with one or two legs missing, being sliced by the knives of the harvester machines. I think I would prefer dying from a hartache after 10 yrs. of living a good life, even in a cage.

Nevertheless, my daughters have founded a movement: "Free Nielsen 2!" Nielsen 2 is now running through our garden, eating our salads for lunch. - Just enjoy the photo "Free Nielsen 2".
