Rabbits in the dog house!
Cardboard boxes tipped over by the rabbits.
Stable "dog kennel" type hiding box (note that while it would be difficult for rabbits to climb on top of this box, ledges were also supplied in the floor pens to allow rabbits to perform this behaviour).
At a recent inspection, an institution was found to be housing rabbits in an exemplary manner.
The rabbits were kept in groups in floor pens with straw bedding, ledges for hiding under and climbing on, and cardboard boxes for hiding in.
It was noticed, however, that the cardboard boxes were able to be tipped over by the rabbits, thus removing their hiding areas.
The boxes were also not large compared to the size of the rabbits, meaning it was difficult for the rabbits to hide together in a box.
It was suggested to the institution that the housing for rabbits could be further improved by providing more stable and larger hiding areas.
The institution responded by providing "dog kennel" type boxes which did not tip over and in which more than one rabbit could hide.
