24 hour hutch sit in

Lin is going to find out what it’s like to live in a hutch. She told RWAF,
“I am going in the hutch at 3pm on Saturday 21st May. It is situated in the rabbit area at Animals In Distress,’Biltor’, Edgelands Lane , Ipplepen , TQ12 5UG .

The hutch is big enough for me to lie down and sit up in, but I will not be able to stand or walk around. Unlike thousands of rabbits around the country I will be able to ‘escape’ when nature calls and I won't be spending the rest of my life locked in.

Any money raised will go towards the new rabbit area that is soon to be built at Animals In Distress, but the most important thing is to raise as much awareness as possible to the conditions that an awful lot of rabbits are kept in.”

If you live in that part of Devon, or are visiting the area on 21st May, why not come along and support Lin? Why not bring some carrots, as Lin will only be eating vegetables for her lock-in stay. Whilst she will not be able to eat all of the veg donated, Animals in Distress will benefit from anything you care to donate for their bunnies. Perhaps your local newspaper might pick up on the story?

  1. Good luck Lin, what a wonderful way to raise awareness, don't envy you though...or the buns who are cramped.
