Two domesticated rabbits found dead

Two domesticated rabbits were found dead in Sembawang on Sunday.

Private rabbit rescue group Bunny Wonderland said the animals were discovered under some bushes at the junction of Admiralty Road East and Sembawang Wharves. One rabbit had bite wounds and blood oozing out of its mouth, the cause of which is unclear.

Bunny Wonderland said they may have been abandoned by home breeders, adding that domesticated rabbits will not survive in the wild. It saw five cases of abandonment last year. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said it has seen cases of rabbits left at void decks, citing it as a common problem.

An Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore spokesman confirmed it is looking into the matter.
