Bunny ban

Coquitlam can keep selling rabbits, but must be spayed or neutered first.

Coun. Mae Reid ended up voting against her own motion after amendments were tacked on by her council colleagues that would allow for the sale or rabbits, providing the animals are fixed.

“I want the total prohibition or nothing,” Reid said during Monday’s meeting.

An increasing number of rabbits are found in local parks, she said, often left behind by people who have grown tired of taking care of the animals. It is cruel that bunnies are being released to end for themselves, she said, often making them food for larger animals such as coyotes.

    The District of North Vancouver has the same bylaw. On May 3rd, with unanimous council support, it was passed that only spayed and neutered rabbits can be sold in pet stores.
