SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – With Easter this weekend, some Siouxlanders may be looking to adopt a real Easter Bunny.
Before you ‘hop’ over to the animal shelter, you might want to do some research.
Officials with the Siouxland Humane Society say while baby bunnies and chicks may cute and fluffy, they take a lot of work to take care of.
These animals are also very fragile, which may not be very ideal for a toddler.
They are also very sensitive to light and temperature and can get sick very easily.
Right now the Siouxland Humane Society doesn’t have any chicks or bunnies.
They say if you still to surprise your kiddos with a bunny, you may want to hold off or seek a more friendly option.
“Either wait until after Easter or maybe or think about getting that plush fluffy bunny or better yet a chocolate bunny, who doesn’t like chocolate,” said Kelly Erie, PR Volunteer Manager for the Siouxland Humane Society.
Speaking of candy, the Animal Shelter is warning folks to watch where you leave your Easter baskets.
Things like chocolate or fake grass can harm animals.
