Taking Care of the Easter Bunnies

Dear Source:
I would hope that someone would encourage the First Lady to include humane advise about not adopting live bunnies for Easter! As a previous Animal Shelter employee I saw too many bunnies/rabbits found on the side of the road and brought in to the Shelter not long after every Easter. I hope the First Lady will encourage people to be compassionate, recognize that Easter bunnies are live animals that need a very long commitment and push the adoption of stuffed toy bunnies during the wonderful day she has planned for the kids.
