Week Four – Domestic Rabbit

Week Four – Domestic Rabbit

The domestic rabbit is a descendant of the wild European rabbit. They were introduced into Britain in 12th Century by the Romans.

Today, they are mainly bred for meat, fur, wool, research and to be sold as pets.

They are the fourth most farmed animal in the world and are one of the most cruelly treated animals in captivity, for which there is no legal protection.
