In July 2016 and we offered to take in two Continental Giant males from RSPCA Hants & Surrey Branch. A litter of 6 was, allegedly, being kept in a 'tool box'. We aren't sure that this actually means but hoped it was more 'cupboard' than box!
The rabbits' owner moved back abroad, apparently, leaving the rabbits behind. It seems he was lodging in the house because the other residents decided to keep the rabbits and feed them up for food. Luckily someone got wind of this and called the RSPCA, taking the rabbits herself until rescue spaces could be found.
Both boys had mites. One was covered in scabs from being nipped at by his sibblings, whilst the other was all skin and bone, with nasty sores on his hocks. They were very young, with HUGE ears - I called them Radar and Radio!
Radar was so un-used to food that I had to show him that he could eat what I put in front of him! He soon cottoned on to it though. The boys gained weight, their wounds healed and both were neutered and vaccinated.
