Wheelz was found stiff and frozen by a farmer at Overlook Acres, US. He was more than likely injured by an older rabbit who dragged him out of his nest box. Normally, the bunny would have been put down to take him out of the misery.
But Wheelz was determined to live, even if paralyzed, so the farm’s owners decided to keep him as a pet.
Wheelz was given a tiny skateboard wheelchair for $1 so that he could move freely. “Just because you raise an animal to consume does not mean that you don’t provide that animal with kindness, compassion, and the best living environment you can provide,” wrote the farmer on Facebook. “Wheelz has his forever home.”
