Thank you, thank you! I’m happy to be here today and have the opportunity to talk about some issues that might not be considered as they should.
As Raul has mentioned before in another post, the exponential growth in housing for the past several years in the area where he works and I live, the rabbit population has experienced an out of control growth that creates a problem.
With the past construction boom that lead to indiscriminate housing expansion for the past ten years, the natural habitat of rabbits, foxes, coyotes and wolves have been completely transformed into fancy neighborhoods occupied by big houses, expensive cars and well cared lawns.
Because of this, foxes, coyotes and wolves have suffered the indignity of being expelled from their natural habitat and rabbits, being such small and silent creatures, had the opportunity of uncontrolled multiplication since just a small, thick bush will provide enough shelter from weather and now the inexistent natural depredators.
At the other hand, many people, after experiencing a comfortable financial situation, have moved to these new areas of fancy houses that attempt to resemble the place for the “Rich and Famous”, but with the economic fall and the imposed burden by the reduction in jobs and salaries, these same people have found themselves in the position of having to literally abandon their dream homes to go back to their already forgotten original financial and social situation or simply remain with the remote hopes that things will improve in the future, but forced to survive in the meantime in a precarious financial situation.
The result is by now we have people who are scared of their future while rabbits seem to be loosing the old fear to human beings. Because of this situation, rabbits have taken the streets to spend their time mostly loitering with complete abandonment of careful planning and continuous precautions about what the dangers are for their particular specie.
At the other hand, people seems to be scared of even venturing outside their homes by the continuous fear of finding themselves in the presence of a neighbor that might ask them “How are you doing” and not having a good answer to such terrible question.
So it seems roles, slowly but surely, have started to invert between people and rabbits and now we have fancy neighborhoods with scared people and pretentious rabbits that have started deadly games among them like running in front and across of a passing car as to prove their might. Sadly, the rate of successful attempts is just of 15 % (squash!)
Because of these situations, rabbits show signs of urgent psychological help to prevent these suicidal games that, not only are changing their natural behavior, but also generate the destruction of fancy make up work by the ladies driving sport utilities that cannot help but make a face of disgust (eww!)
It becomes imperative then that the proper roles assigned by Mother Nature to its creatures be restored, so we can have people that don’t live in fear and rabbits that recover their natural survival instinct as the way it should be.
Thank you for your time.
Mr RabbitMr. Rabbit works as a counselor and therapist for highly stressed rabbits that require assistance in adapting to a fast changing world. Right now he is in the process of starting a blog to document his discoveries in the field of rabbit psychology, as soon as he can get around the problem of typing without fingers; for that reason no email address is available at this time.
