In light of the Olympic Games, currently taking place in London, the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF) is launching the Bunny-lympics.
As the government promotes fitness for all in the Olympic year, the charity is extending the call to rabbits too - due to the high number of pets suffering health problems because of bad diet and lack of exercise space.
The sports events suggested for these furry athletes are as follows:
Long jump, Triple jump and High jump -– given the right conditions, rabbits will be able to demonstrate their own interpretations of these events!
Sprint and Hurdles –- don’t expect the competitors to stay in their lanes though!
Distance running -– in the wild, rabbits cover an area of up to 30 football pitches in a day, so make sure there is enough room.
Relay - for those rabbits in neutered pairs or compatible groups.
Football and Volleyball -– give them something to knock around their enclosure.
Gymnastics - rabbits will get top marks for artistic impression.
And their very own event, most importantly, in which all rabbits can excel - Digging and Tunnelling.
It's time for rabbits across the country to go for gold!
