I did a qutoe at a house this week and they had one, they said you can keep them with a permit is this true?
Clearly having Rabbits illegal in Queensland does make a difference. A number of contributors to the thread including yourself have implied they dont /wont keep rabbits because it is illegal.I don't like seeing it either, but unfortunately, its a fact of life, if there's money to be made, you can be sure someone's going to take advantage of it and/or exploit it. Petshops are a big contender for that one... It's all supply and demand. And some things will never change.
I just don't see the point in having them illegal when it makes no real difference in this case. I'd like to be able to freely breed my own rabbits to feed my big snakes. Plus, apart from occasionally being mauled by pet bunny's claws, I liked keeping them when I lived in NSW.
If we're allowed to keep rodents, which have been known to spread disease and all sorts of nasties, not to mention chewing through and destroying everything they can wrap their mouths around... Why not Rabbits too?
