Easter bunny not so smart

Madison Erhardt

Many people think the perfect Easter gift is a bunny, but SPCA Branch Manager Sean Hogan says it's best to stick with chocolate.

Hogan says it's important to think through adopting a pet – they shouldn't be bought on impulse.

''Bunnies are specialized little animals and they do require a lot more attention than bringing them into a person's home and letting them run free.''

He stresses rabbits require a lot of care and attention. 

''They are not necessarily the cute, cuddly little things that they have been marketed as. I think that makes it very difficult for people to understand why it's not a great idea to buy them as gifts this time of year,'' Hogan said. 

If a family or person would be a good fit for a rabbit or bunny, the SPCA will make sure the right animal goes to the right home. 

''We take it quite seriously when people are looking to adopt. Our main priority is to find that blend of what a person is looking for and what the animals that they are looking at have to offer."
