Thank you to @natecull for sharing a truly shocking news story about YouTube/Google:

As #Easter is coming up, a reminder that rabbits are very complex animals with more needs than most realise.
They live 10 or more years, aren't usually big on being cuddled, cost as much as a dog, and need a lot of time, space to run around, and attention. They should allay be kept in pairs at least.
