A defenseless little rabbit in Limerick, Ireland was tortured by teens who were seen tying a rope to the rabbit’s leg and throwing it repeatedly in the water before ordering their dog to attack.

According to Limerick Animal Welfare, the innocent rabbit endured “horrific” cruelty and the youths continued to torture it until a passerby witnessed the disturbing behavior and ordered the kids to turn the male rabbit over to her.  The Good Samaritan brought the rabbit to the sanctuary located in Kilfinane where the animal is currently being helped.

“This poor little rabbit was subjected to the most horrific cruelty and incredibly survived. A group of youths had tied a rope to the rabbit and were throwing the rabbit into the river and getting their dogs to go into the river after the rabbit. The youths then pulled the rabbit out of the water and proceeded with the cruelty throwing it back in again and again. A lady who witnessed this shocking behaviour demanded the rabbit from them and brought it to Limerick Animal Welfare.”

A spokesperson for the sanctuary told the Limerick Leader, rabbits are still often mistreated, and they are commonly tied by their legs and used to teach greyhounds to chase them for racing purposes. Sadly, some teens are compelled to act in inhumane acts involving small animals because of peer pressure. Isn’t it time parents taught their children respect for all animals? There is never an excuse for animal cruelty.

    Tie the brats’ legs and threw them in the river to give these rat rugs the experience of being tortured, and maybe they’ll learn to respect living animals. Their parents are surely not doing a good job!

    These miserable punks need a huge lesson taught to them – the post says nothing about whether they were caught, arrested or are facing any charges – there are some who should have been aborted instead of birthed – and these useless subhuman brats are a prime example. They should all be sitting in a jail cell at the mercy of some predatory inmates who can use them as they please. Don’t care how young they are – they are already ruined and deserve no mercy.

    what the hell is wrong with kids. don’t the parents teach them respect for all living creatures?
    please don’t give me the reason that they didn’t know what they were doing to that poor rabbit.

    Yes if more parents were prosecuted for the crimes their kids did eventually parents would start teaching their kids right from wrong instead of just letting their kids grow up willy nilly without teaching. “letting them find themselves” teaches them nothing! The good samaritan should have gotten their names.
