Canadian Vet offers to Snip the Nuts off Easter Bunnies
Barry Artiste Op.Ed
With Easter coming around the corner a British Columbia Vet has offered to chase down and "denut" the wild free roaming Little Bunnies, Hippity Hoppity around the University of Victoria. The Vet hasn't offered an explanation of what he will do with a sack full of "Bunnie Nuts", but stranger things go on in British Columbia Kitchens and Bedrooms which are best left unanswered.
Imagine if you will this Mad Doctor chasing down Bunnies with a Knife, while horrified children watch all this during spring break as they tour the grounds. Blood and Nuts and Bunny screams everywhere fills the air.
No word from Peta on this, of for that matter all the little Bunnies who will be running terrified by some whacko in a mask, white lab coat and a scalpel chasing little bunnies down on University grounds, one thing for sure Herr Doktor Elmer Fudd, when he catches em, they will soon be displaying a little less spring in their hopping for a week or two.
One thing to be sure, at the Easter Egg Hunt the kids will certainly be able to catch any bunnies that the Herr Doktor has toyed with,
A series of quick snips could cut down on the University of Victoria's problem rabbit population, says a local veterinarian.
Nick Shaw, owner of Shaw Pet Hospitals, is offering free vasectomies to male bunnies hopping around campus.
Shaw, who has three clinics in Greater Victoria, said he would be willing to pick up most of the costs, provided he and his staff could hold fundraising events to help defray expenses.
"My staff had some wonderful ideas on how to promote it and we could sell buttons and ask for donations to support the program," said Shaw, who added the normal cost for a rabbit vasectomy would be about $100 for an individual and $60 each for a bunch of bunnies.
Shaw first approached the university about a year ago, at the suggestion of lab assistant Tamara Lovegrove, a UVic graduate who was willing to mobilize her student friends to round up the male rabbits.
But Shaw was told there would first have to be a bunny count. "Then they would just never commit to anything," he said.
