What was witnessed yesterday at T&S Rabbits in East Bridgford was even worse than we’d expected.
Rabbits forced to live with painful infections and injuries, in their own filth, on wire mesh floors in barren runs or in tiny hutches.
Many covered in filth – the rabbits pictured below should be pure white – many with obvious mite infestations, in overcrowded pens with unstable hierarchies, causing bullying of the ill and weaker rabbits, including urine spraying.
We even discovered partially burned bodies of deceased individuals.
The worker on site thought there was no issue with the filth, leaving suffering animals without veterinary treatment, keeping naturally athletic animals in 3ft boxes, feeding unsuitable food, and ultimately turning them into vulgar garments – she even found this something to laugh about.
There is now an ongoing RSPCA investigation into what we found here – anyone who was in attendance yesterday please forward any images or videos taken to Nottingham Animal Rights or ourselves, you can email any large files to Rabbitfarmresistance@privacyrequired.com and these shall be forwarded on to the RSPCA.
