It is a lovely place for the kiddies, but the animals are in a poor condition and the bunnies are petrified as there are no staff to control how visitors treat animals. The Bunny Park up to now has not charged an entrance but relied on government handouts. Since December 2014 the park has been become so neglected that bunnies have died in their beds and others trapped under garbage. The Bunny Park also plays home to some sheep, pigs and other petting animals.
When Linda De Jong brought the matter to my attention she was appealing for assistance on Facebook. Within a matter or a week she had organised a clean-up of the Bunny Park and contributions of food .
Financial assistance contributions can be made to for the pets medical care at discounted rates. The animals need medicines, procedures and aftercare which cost a lot.
There is now a wish list for the bunnies and their friends.
