Bugs bunny out of control in Thai temple

Words turned into reality for an abbot of a Ratchaburi temple as he learned to appreciate the phrase “breeding like rabbits”.

Wat Toong Noi, which fosters hundreds of little bunnies, is asking the public to help take some of the furry creatures to live in their loving homes because the temple cannot afford to feed them all.

It all started with just 6 rabbits which soon transformed into 300 of them, becoming mascots of the temple, abbot Phra Athikarnjai Nitisaro said Saturday, but also eating them out of business as he’s struggling to pay for their food and care.

Different from Bangkok’s pampered air-conditioned rabbits, the temple’s bunnies spend their slow days in nature, taking swag naps on cement drainage pipes and digging their way into the earth.

Now there are still remaining 160 Bunnies for adoption but as the abbot mentioned he will only give away the babies to the public as he fears the big ones could be on the bbq grill at any time.

The temple also welcomes anyone who wants to visit or feed the bunnies. The abbot believes it can help foster children’s love and care for animals.
