What’s necessary

On marmots and rabbits.

UVic rabbits are cute and they do give the school a certain charm. But you’d be naïve to think life is paradise for these animals.

For every rabbit we see soaking up the sun and being fed by adoring first-year students, there are many more moments of freezing cold, starvation, injury and illness. Problems that are only exacerbated the larger the population is allowed to get.

If you can’t stand to let your mind linger on rabbits in their darkest times, don’t. But have the strength to let those who can, who share a compassion for all life, do what’s necessary to correct a situation in which humans are an inextricable part of the equation.
