Janill Gilbert stashed this in Animals
Bunny breeder Betty Chu is the proud owner of the world's furriest rabbits - whose hair can measure almost 15 inches long.
The 70-year-old has dedicated the last 34 years to producing prize-winning English angora rabbits.
She lives with 50 of them at her home in San Jose, California, and is so dedicated she hasn't holidayed with her husband since 1992.
"I'm honoured to be in the Guinness Book of World Records but my most important goal is simply to breed the best English angora rabbits in the world [my emphasis].
She added: 'Angora rabbits can grow their fur very long but it takes a lot of work to get there.
'You need to have the right genetics. Not all angora rabbits have the ability to grow and maintain a long coat"
I'm not thrilled. She is, after all, dealing with living creatures.
Is your not being thrilled due to her having so many?
Or having them at all?
Adam, it's accommodating the bunnies' 'aliveness', no matter the number. From the photos of small, indoor cages and her stated "goal", I had visions resembling puppy mills.
Here's an independent link to the article's video. Around 2:15 is a clearer prospective of their environment.
Maybe I would feel sorry for the neighbors? I'm thinking there might be a curious odor wafting over from her yard ;)
Janill, yes, big bunny odors are unpleasant.
Marlene, I see your point. Their environment looks quite uncomfortable.
