Man Abandons Bunny, on Easter No Less

The rabbit, named Hope, is regaining its health

Think twice before giving a real rabbit as an Easter gift.
A New Jersey man is accused of abandoning his family's pet rabbit in the woods behind his Marlboro, N.J. home.
Jong Park was issued summonses for abandonment and failure to provide food, water or shelter to a pet. The 51-year-old could face up to $2,000 in fines if convicted.
Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Police Chief Victor Amato says the family wanted the rabbit "to make new friends.'' Amato says they didn't understand a domesticated animal can't survive on its own.
