I really think this needs to be shared because it’s something I really wish would change about where I live. The laws regarding ownership of a pet rabbit in Queensland are quite silly, and considering the rest of the country has legalised bunnies as pets, I think it is about time the law and regulations were reconsidered.
Animal shelters like The Rabbit Sanctuary in northern NSW are overflowing with bunnies that need homes due to their owners having to surrender them due to having to move to QLD for other commitments, as well as the many rescues that occur due to bunnies being found in QLD. There are also so many willing and potential homes for rescue bunnies with people in this state who would love to bring a fluffy bun into their family and that would be drastically helping reduce the amount of homeless domesticated rabbits in Australia.
There are so many people I know who have either had to give up their pet because of having to move to this state, or forced to bring their pet over the border anyways and constantly live in unnecessary fear that their loved pet may end up being taken away from them. The laws also cause a lot of bunnies that are smuggled over the border as pets to go without vet care and ideal living conditions due to their owners risk of getting fined if caught, which is not fair.
Bunnies make amazing domesticated pets just like dogs and cats, and are beautiful creatures and deserve to be treated with respect rather then considered a horrible pest and threat to our state.
So signing this petition may help raise awareness on peoples opinions on the matter and might have the small chance of helping a few furry friends and frustrated pet owners. So if you have a moment just sign it, and reblog it!
