Rabbits banned

Richmond council votes unanimously to outlaw rabbit sales.

“This is the first step toward a total ban on animal sales. The fact of the matter is I think that’s the right direction,” said Johnston.

Council earlier considered requiring pet stores to spay or neuter their retail rabbits instead of creating a ban, but it noted enforcement would be a challenge.

Once the new bylaw language is ratified, council is expected to consider banning the sale of dogs at retail stores.
