Thinking of Getting a Rabbit for a Pet?

Are you ready for a rabbit?  Are you familiar with its penchant for digging?  Do you understand its dietary and housing needs?  Before bringing a new bunny home, you should learn basic bunny care.

As with any domesticated animal, we can trace most of the rabbit’s behavior back to his wild ancestors. And it comes as no surprise that rabbits, by nature, are diggers and burrowers. In the wild, a safe excavation for homes and birthing places can reach three feet in depth; so it will take your rabbit almost no time at all to ruin a carpet or dig a tunnel in your garden – should he have the opportunity. Your best option is to supervise him closely and provide him safe alternatives to fulfill his natural tendency to dig.

Lenihan Retains Position; Ryce A No-Show

BUFFALO, NY - During a Saturday morning reorganization meeting, Len Lenihan unanimously won a vote and retained his position as head of the Erie County Democratic Committee.

Businesswoman Sundra Rice planned to challenge Lenihan, but she did not attend this morning's meeting. Ryce hoped to become both the first woman and the first African-American to head the Erie County Democratic Committee.

Mayor Byron Brown, a long time critic of Lenihan, had been supporting Rice.

Lenihan plans to focus on unifying the party leading into the November elections.
