    As Californians suffer the devastation caused by wildfires that have burned through more than 100,000 acres, one man braved the flames to save a wild rabbit and instantly became the hero we didn't know we needed. Video of the daring rescue shows a Ventura County highway near La Conchita engulfed in smoke and flames. An orange-and-black singed sky fills the screen. But then, a wild rabbit darts across traffic and into the burning brush. A man, stopped on the road and wearing just shorts and a hoodie, races after him. The rabbit is both out of reach and in danger....

  • [March 27, 2015] March Hares Hopping on the Rabbit Bandwagon

    Rabbits aren't just for snuggling. They are, in fact, for eating. Though rabbit meat's last heyday (at least in the United States) was during World War II when most of the beef was shipped to troops overseas, the consumption of rabbit meat is again on the rise. While some might find the notion of eating something so cute quite difficult to stomach (Whole Foods' decision to start selling the white meat at select stores in 2014 was met with boycotts and protested by groups such as the House Rabbit Society), the meat has historically been embraced by different cultures and...

    Historically, there is a surge in the number of rabbits abandoned at Long BeachCityCollege’s (LBCC) Liberal Arts Campus (LAC) each Easter season. Hundreds of domesticated rabbits have been abandoned on campus in recent years which has created a host of problems, especially for the rabbits who have been released into the wild when they should be cared for as pets. “People are under the false impression that LBCC is a safe haven for rabbits so they tend to drop them off when they are no longer wanted as family pets,” said Jacque Olson, a LBCC employee who has provided care...
